Hi Boris

I went down to the club last night and tidied up the holes that were left in the mast – I managed to thread a bow shaped shackle through the holes (as you did) and I think it might work ok – lets see. In the worst case I’ll have to refit the tang a bit further up the mast.

Re: blank masts – It seems that you can’t buy a completely blank mast (I just phoned a dealer nr southampton) You can buy one without rigging but it’s still around £500+vat. This would still have the spreaders and I suppose the sheaves etc. Still v. expensive for a boat that is only worth 2-3k (I suppose it’s worth a lot less without a mast). Anyway – I will work around this problem I think.

regards

Keith
