Re: Mast Painting
Rich, as you know, we're repainting our mast. The new boom from LeFiell is coming from them painted. LeFiell uses Sterling. I'm very curious as to why the spreaders you got were not painted.
I expect the paint to be dinged and banged up in a fairly short time, but our overall reason for painting is not so much cosmetic, but protective. We're lucky, given the age of our spars (30 years this year), that we didn't have more deterioration and corrosion than we do - and we want to keep it that way.
