Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.

Brian: I meant keel stepped as in Wylie Coyote style, where I'm happily cutting away underneath and suddenly my mast get's 7' shorter on deck, and I get a keel stepped mast whether I like it or not, or a hole in the bottom. The problem with new beam only is it doesn't fix the distortion elsewhere, where things settled like you can see from the V-berth. I need to find someone here as skilled as you are with electrical but in the fiberglass and rigging department.

I'll happily pay them to help, I just don't want to approach this one alone with my experience level. Tabbing etc I'll try alone later after learning. Unless you feel like another trip to Vancouver?
