In my experience, the coins are generally silver, since they're supposed to be used to pay Charon, the Ferryman, and silver is the cost of passage across the river Styx. I guess you could use gold, but I've never seen gold used personally.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Corroded mast step update

A happy update:

Dan Pfeiffer referred me to Dick Conti, formerly of Metalmast Marine, now with DC Products, LLC. After some discussion with Dick, the yard cut off about two inches of the mast and sent that and the old step off to Dick in CT. Dick knew I was under a time constraint and turned it around quickly. Everything is put back together and I am a happy camper. For a reasonable price, Dick created a beautiful alluminum step, that the yard and I agree was very well done. Dick could not have been better or easier to work with. I recommend him highly.

I would provide my and Dick's e mail, but this system will not allow it.

Glad to hear it all came together so quickly. Please post a picture of the finished product when you get a chance - this is something I may need to attended to on our P303 in the next few years.

Re: Replacing Corroded Mast Step

Any chance these pictures still exist? I have this very problem today.

I know dead thread, but wasn't getting far on the Pearson thread.

Re: Replacing Corroded Mast Step

Im afraid I don't have the pictures, and I sold the boat a couple of years ago to an older gentleman in Beaufort, SC. I'm happy to help any way I can.

Re: Replacing Corroded Mast Step

Peter

What did you use to cut the mast? Also, was anything done in the bilge area or do you just use longer screws to attach the plate? What type of screws? Do they make aluminum screws?

I have a guy who can weld me a new plate, but I like the idea of raising it up and out of the bilge water. Maybe build up a fiberglass dam around/under
the plate.

thanks

Keith
