I will abandon this thread as it has been hijacked.
Good, abandon away. I don't see how discussing stepping the mast is concidered a hijack, after all that was the OPs topic, remember? At least some of us are offering up advice and useful links pertaining to the subject matter, whereas some others are not, so who's hijacking Rick? And I said I wasn't going to get into a battle over it.....
RR, enjoy SVArgo and welcome to the PSC family. Great boats. You may also find some info in the Yahoo groups, but I think that the 37 group is pretty dead. The Dana and Flicka groups are very active, and can offer up some good advice on certain items even though they are different boats. A few things translate through much of the PSC line.
