Yeah that is what it looks like! I like the idea of raising it up out of the bilge water. My mast could lose about a 1/2 or so, but it is in good enough shape to leave as in and maybe cut in three years. Does your mast now just rest on top of the plate? I do not see any supporting structure to guide it in place.
