I think that's a great idea. What's your idea for locations? I like Kingston; but, it has limited anchoring. Little Sodus Bay is a fantastic sail, deep (30') and has tons of anchoring. Fair Haven ,...

Re: How Do You Weld A Mast

I would think a certified welder would be able to TIG weld a fitting up there. It has to be someone that knows aluminum. The tang fitting may be a better idea though. You should talk to a rigger.

Re: bottom paint prep

I use the West System 105 with the fast hardner (205). It isn't fast. Very hard and durable. Proven track record.
On your hull i would use a good barrier coat.

Re: bottom paint prep

I have found that hard epoxy (West system) seems to work the best on the cast iron. The cast iron must be absolutely clean before application. Sand blasting or grinding; sandblasting is best. Tape...

Re: question for swing keel sailors

I'm always harping on my dockmate/buddy about him leaving his keel up.

I can tell when it's up when he comes in by the amount of drift from the boat (leeway) . Leave it down.
