Re: Mistral 16'

Hi boatshell I had the same problem with my spreaders. I don't know how bad yours is but mine was easily fixable with a fifteen dollar riveter from Lowes and some large aluminum rivets. It also took a small amount of hamering to get the spreader bracket back into the right shape. Best of luck. I love my boat, it is so much fun to sail.

I agree about the google group. Although I did get a response from a bunch of folks there. I'd rather see that here on sail net. The interface is more user friendly and there is a much bigger pool of people to draw from. I asked the moderators to start a mistral only thread like they have for many other boats, but it never got done.
