Failed mast-stepping

Postby Skinny T » Tue Oct 20, 2020 6:12 am

Hey, all!

I’ve been stalking the forums for about a year now while I work on restoring a C22 I ran across last year.

Thought I’d share the FUN we had last weekend! I’ve been working hard the last few weeks, targeting THIS weekend as our maiden voyage, and last weekend it was finally time to practice stepping the mast.

As I’ve read here, we came across a pretty common problem when the cast aluminum shoe at the bottom of the mast snapped!

I knew it would be good to capture either way, so out my kid on video duty: https://youtu.be/SLdfpOMIYuk

A new mast hinge is already on its way!
