    Having bought my Mark II earlier this year, I have problems hoisting the main, it is very tight at the entry to the track and further up. I have tried another Wayfarer main, much better condition than mine, but it too is nigh impossible to haul up, so I conclude that my mast track/slot gap varies. Can anyone suggest the most effective way of easing the slot please? Apart from buying a new mast!

    Hi.Nick.
    Simple,Ihad a narrow slot too stiff to fit a highfield lever.Hammer a larg screwdriver in where it is narrow and if that does not make it wide enough lever slightly.

    Many thanks Jim, it will very likely come to that, at several points up the mast.
    I wonder if anyone knows the specific slot width of the mast, I assume that Seldon and Proctor the same? Nick
