Re: Broken Spreader
I did end up replacing both, myself (very scary up there).
I went to a fence company and had them cut out a couple of pieces from oak. They were much heavier than what was up there, that concerned me.
They have been on the boat for two month now, all is well though.
I do sail almost daily, so, I think, so far, what I did is a good fix. Time will tell.
So, going up the mast, not so fun with only one line attached to me. When I decided to double the line, I felt like a monkey up there. Good times!
