Mast sections can certainly be welded. The spreader bases on Isomat masts are aluminum castings that are welded to the mast. That's right in the middle of the mast section. If the patch was done...

Peter Hartoft (http://www.hartoftmarinesurvey.com/index.html) will come over from Annapolis. He did a good job when I bought my boat. Remember though, no surveyor will see or catch everything. ...

Re: Two too extremes! TaShing v Jeanneau

Re: Where to retire?

Oh yeah. The Chesapeake is TERRIBLE!!! Don't come here. Stay away because it's awful. Nothing but bad weather ever and the bugs are so bad you can hardly breath without inhaling a few. :D

Re: Bottom paint: Micron Extra/CSC, Pettit Ultima SR-40/SR-60

Re: Bottom paint: Micron Extra/CSC, Pettit Ultima SR-40/SR-60

Main: It was your posts specifically that prompted me to ask both Interlux and Pettit about whether it was better to hot coat the barrier coat with a non-slime inhibitor paint. Both said it's fine....

Re: In regards to Lightning

I was thinking that might be the case. Getting a very low resistance path from the terminal tip to the mast might be a bit of a challenge. I suppose I could have an aluminum rod welded to the mast...

Re: In regards to Lightning

Yes - it IS just a rod. I'm not asking about the entire system. The air terminal as described is a rod extending at least 6" above anything else on the masthead. Top should be rounded per recent...

As mentioned, a tall standing room measurement will have (mostly bad) effects on other things on a boat less than ~40 Ft. High freeboard, high cabin top, etc. will be things to consider. I'm 6' and...
