There's a small plane in my mast -- vrooooomm
OK, there really isn't a small plane in my mast, but it sounds like there's a Cessna in there about to take off. In certain wind directions the humming is very loud. I tried pressing against the mast, then grabbing the stays. Nothing worked. It only occurs in strong winds that come across the bow at an angle. (At anchor it is usually quiet.)
Any ideas what causes this and how to fix it?
