Hello Phil,
The only other bit of “chocking I can think of is the possible need to shim under the mast to take the vertical strain off the pin. I don’t do this because the mast (just) sits on its foot within the track – no shims required.

Hi David,

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I certainly need to shim the foot of the mast as at best, there is a scrape when raising the mast. The freedom of the mast to wobble was quite evident the other day.

Am I correct in assuming that there are two elements adding the chocks, i.e. safety and rig tuning?
