Re: Mast Step Problem
ok .... so I think the pieces have all come together.
My boat was made by Ocean Yachts. They were bought out by Sumner Yachts. I was under the impression that they continued making the boat, "as is". The specs I got online are from Sumner and not OY. Apparently, the OY model did not have a hinged mast step setup, which the Sumner specs indicated it had. So, Sumner did indeed change the boat. The model I have is merely a mast step and the pins were used to center the mast tongue and keep it from sliding fore and aft.
I had wondered how a hinged setup would work, anyway, since the centerboard console would be in the way of raising the mast in this way. Someone else also pointed this out.
Thanks for all your help!
