Hi Colin,

I would agree that a piece of elastic is not a ‘Pin’ or ‘Bolt’….personally, I have the pin as supplied by the Hartleys, but have discussed with others the use of elastic and the interpretation of the terms pin and bolt..

I dont object to people doing this…..if a measurer says it is fine, then that’s fine by me! Develpment often happens when people come up with different ideas. I would prefer not to use a pin at all and have the potential for a greater range of movement of the mast foot.
