Mast step repair? Marsh Hen.
I have an oportunity to buy a 1981 Marsh Hen. It has a few issues, the worse of which is a broken out mast step. The bottom is not affected. The step is broken fore and aft. The only othe thing is a badly pitted mast. Everything else looks good. Especially the sail.
My question is could someone give me a ballpark figure of cost + man hours to fix the step? Complete step rebuild would be the job.
I did a search but could not find any threads on the subject.
I got the owner down $2500 after mentioning the damage. Everything else on the boat I could fix myself.
I guess they only made 40 of these, but I am not a collector, I just want to sail.
Thanks for any help,
