Internal mast support in flotation chamber
« on: May 30, 2011, 10:03:32 PM »
In the flotation chamber there is a wooden support for the post in the cabin that supports the mast.   It appears to be shattered and needs replacement.   I noticed that my shroud tension started to sag on the last race--I am guessing that is why.    Has anyone run into this before and have any advice on how to repair?

Look under tips and twists. Stringer repair on the u20 class site.

Thanks.  Looks like a significant repair--guess it is off to Elkhorn Composites.
