The "Blisters" are not raised, just a wet white puss emitting through the bottom paint. Like a zit.

Closer look at the oozing brown stuff.

What would you do??

I was thinking of splashing my boat this weekend but after further examination, I see some items that need attention (or not). WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Are these actually blisters? Looks like boat acne:) https://goo.gl/photos/2Bytj5TyVW3PWZVN8 And of course the much discussed Mast Step problem with radiat...

EE, That would have been the the obvious solution, I instead created a makeshift spreader with a notched 2" X 4" and wedged it between the mast and the center shroud which restored the lost tension. Thinking I'll just pull the boat and use the mast crane to inspect and repair with the mast down. ERR...

jeremyh,

The spreaders are much different on the 26 vs 22.On the 26, the for and aft shrouds attach to the spreader base. On the 22 those shrouds are directly attached to the mast.

C26 spreader post specs. snapped off a spreader today.

It appears that the spreaders are pinned to a post that goes through the mast. Need to fab a new one and need the specs. Any suggestions on doing this without dropping the mast would be helpful. Thinking a tall ladder would not be stable after loosening the shrouds. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com...

So the ring with the three set screws should slide off the rudder post and drop my rudder? Seems to be quite stuck. Might need a bigger hammer.

or am I missing something?

Thinking that I will go with the single hole at this point.

I am wondering about how the single hole method should be installed. Wha...

Just ordered the same. Some have added backing, extending the motor outward. Hoping that will work with this motor on my 26.

I have a Sailor 250 that I never got to run. Decided it was time to upgrade and start having FUN.
