How to stop a singing mast?
Thanks for the towel idea. The other suggestions I got where:
1) turn and lock the rudder to changer the angle of the wind on the mast
2) loosen or tighten a turnbuckle to change the "tuning" of the mast, although, my luck the wind speed would also change, and I would be up all night "playing" the rig.
3) Wrap the spinnaker halyard multiple time around the mast, disrupting the airflow.
I will try one of these the next time I''m out and am kept awake by my boat''s concert. Sailing with a two year old and three year old, I have found "looking stupid" takes a back seat to functional sanity.
