Re: What to do if a shroud or stay breaks
Should I assume deck stepped vs keel stepped would make a difference as to when a mast would fail?
Some difference, but probably not much. The moment arm is just too long for the mast to be supported by the deck. More than likely it would just snap at the partners, and possibly making a big hole in the deck as it does.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
