Re: Multi-hull capsize anti turtling device (mast float)
I've raced in fleets where MANY pitched, and never saw a raced boat turtle. Recreational sailors, yes; they hang on the rigging and don't get to the righting lines quickly.
Make certain the mast is sealed. That is your float. Adding internal foam will actually reduce flotation.
