We had to slacken off the mast stays to get the door to close. Any one else had this problem? What's the next step? Any suggestions?
Thanks for help. Don't think there is any break up of the mast step - how do I look for that? I think that the Bavaria just isn't constructed strongly enough beneath the mast to take the pressures. I'm not sure that the rigger was or was not putting racing pressures on the rig but surely the set up below should be solid enough to take that tension? What if the mast is not set correctly now - is it likely to break?
