Re: newport 27 stopbolt near top of mast track
Hey ge, thanks for replying. Actually I haven't seen the stopbolt up close but I did send a little camera up the mast on the jib halyard and got a breif glimpse of it. I don't see why it couldn't be moved although I will definitely not be the one moving it. I have a definite fear of heights so I doubt that I'll ever be convinced to go up my mast. I'm not at all opposed to supporting my local rigger and he's a pretty good guy to ask for advice most times. I'm going to send the camera up again, this time with the sail up, and make sure that the slide is bumped up against the bolt before I call him. The picture associated with my post is actually a pic of the new main although it's pretty tiny. I'll try to post a few more but I'm new to the site.
So, you think it's worthwhile to keep the bolt in the track? Is that a standard thing on sail tracks?
