Re: P26-redirect halyards to cockpit
rhr1956 - it looks like the pics you posted got deleted. Any chance of emailing them to me? I decided I was going with the aluminum plate set-up that you created. My thought was to thread the plate and mast rather than use the pop-rivets but then started thinking I won't have any nuts or backing inside the mast unless I take the mast down (which I'm trying to avoid).
Does anyone have an opinion on the need for nuts or washers on the threaded bolts to hold plates on? I was going to use eight, 1/4x20 bolts to hold each plate on.
