Our Hoodstoway mast will "sing" (or as others might say, "she wails like a banshee") when we are sailing on a certain angle to the wind, or even at anchor (wind against the current scenario).
I have not noticed this with the larger, more modern yachts w/IMF.
Does anyone know if the slot design on newer boats has been changed to solve this problem?
Fortunately, the PO had a cover built for when is on the hard or in a slip, so we aren't run out of yards or marinas tarred and feathered.
