The standard wire shrouds on a Dart 15 leave marks on your nice new white sail,
this can be alleviated by using white PVC covered shrouds. The recommended place
to obtain these from is Spencer Rigging on the Isle of Wight, who have provided
great service at a reasonable price.

|Further to Bob's request and of interest to all owners of new Dart15's and those with new sails.
Plastic covered shrouds are available from Spencer Rigging 01983 292144 at only £13.50 a pair they
keep your new sail clean, cheap at half the price ask for Ben Bradley and mention the Association.|
Bob Carter replied:
|Please note for those interested in these shrouds that the price quoted does not include the Adjuster
covers which are standard on Dart 15s. You need to request that they fit RWO Rigging Screw Covers
(#R9242) when you order the shrouds. It will probably add about £4.50 to the price of a pair of shrouds.|
Bob followed this up with:
|I ordered my plastic coated shrouds from Spencers Rigging a few days ago to keep the new sail on the DB's clean.
They came today and look OK. The final price for a pair with adjuster covers, post & packing plus VAT was £27.40|
More recently Paul Smith commented:
|... Incidentally I am most impressed with the service from Spencer Rigging. Rang up last Friday to get a quote
which was given the same day at very reasonable cost. Posted my order with cheque on Monday which presumably
arrived Tuesday, and I received the parcel at 8.45 a.m. Wednesday - brilliant...|
