Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.
I thought the connector broke because when I looked at it while I was fishing the mast out of the water the connector was dis connected but my sail buddy said he disconnected it to try to help me out, I did not get a good look at what was broken until today.
To be honest it all happened kind of quick, one second there was a noise, the next the mast is in the water.
I will replace the connectors but they all seem to be in good shape so does my theory of loose rigging plus the force of a tack in 15-20 mph winds seem plausible to break this? I did not sheet in when I switched, just kinda let it zoom from one side to the other.
