Re: Best "Rigging Parts Configuration" 18'

Thanks for the input zz.

That's kind of the "boat" I am in with the "extra parts". I pretty much left it except for replacing a toggle and adding one and replacing a t-jaw. I was thinking about...

Re: Best "Rigging Parts Configuration" 18'

On both the port and starboard outer shrouds I have 2 toggles.. they kinda bind up and bend sometimes.. would a small extender be worth a try to lessen the amount of toggles or does it not really...

Re: Mast leaning forward (new mast step)

Interesting idea overboard.. they should design something like that. Hopefully I will be able to adjust the mast later by the stays and slightly bending of the mast.

Wow overboard, interesting idea. It would be great if they designed a swivel mast bracket.

Hopefully I will be able to adjust the mast later by the stays and slightly bending of the mast.

Re: Mast leaning forward (new mast step)

Thanks! Someone else suggested trimming the bottom of the mast. I am still wondering how I can get it "machine shop perfect" with a belt sander though.

So I guess it's the shim or trim! Thanks...

Re: Mast leaning forward (new mast step)

Those are the same pics I seen and I too thought that. I don't think you would want the mast floating though, it would bend up that bracket fast.

Re: Mast leaning forward (new mast step)

Thanks faster,

trimming that mast to a slight angle sounds like a good idea. I do hate to disturb the bracket. Yes it is leaning pretty good.

Re: Mast leaning forward (new mast step)

Thanks for the reply.

Hmmm, you have me wondering now... the Dwyer guy told me that the mast should sit flat and NOT on the pin (as the weight would deform the bracket) - I guess the weight is...

Re: Can I cut my mast? (with pics)

Interesting.

The guys at Dwyer Mast say that the bottom of the mast HAS TO sit flush on the bracket (not on the pin) or else her says it will deform the pin hole.
