ok ive already stepped the mast easy enough i found out what i needed and bought it i'm about to step the mast again saturday, an be ready for sunday sailing. i know weight is the enemy with a boat this small. thats why i kinda don't want a motor on the boat. speeds better than just crusing slow because i'm to loaded down so i'm going to try to keep the boat light as possible. the think is about the water tight places. i'm pretty sure the storage on the boat is all after market made after bought. i can't find any mistral with a setup with a big storage like that at the port bow, also a spinnaker hole was made in the hull. so i'm not to sure of the buoyancy of the boat now.
