Mast repair Empty
PostSubject: Mast repair   Mast repair EmptySun Jun 21, 2015 7:49 am

I was woken this morning, Father's Day, with a call from my dockmaster who informed me that my mast had fallen during the NorEastern we got hit with last night.  Arriving at dockside I found my mast lying in the water off the port side, all turn buckles were unscrewed on the starboard side causing the mast to tear from the mast mount.  Not quite sure how the turn buckles unscrewed themselves, I guess the lock nuts were not tightened down when I launched the other day.  Anyway being the captain, it is my fault for not checking the security of all, a lesson now learned as a new captain of a sailboat.  My question is this, can I get away with just remounting the mast with the bolt hole walls torn out, or should I cut the mast above the tear, about an inch, and replace all my cables to match the loss of the one inch?  The mast mount is bent but I think I can straighten that OK, the mast is in good shape, all lines and turn buckles appear to be ok. the front and rear mast structures at the base are good, just the side walls tore out.

Any suggests from experienced sailors would be appreciated...not sure how to post a pic of my mast damage here, my email address is Ric26h@aol.com, if you make contact with me I can send you the photo.

Thanks everyone, now about turn buckles...how do you prevent them from unscrewing?
