Hi

I am replaceing the decks on boat #90.... I think I have it more or less covered... BUT if anybody can point out some traps for young players before I fall into one of them it would be much appreciated!

Mast support

Postby Slow Hand on Thu Feb 18, 2010 2:44 pm

Hi,
check the soundness of timbers under the mast step area - especially where they meet the keel - if water has laid in the boat, it can cause rot in the vertical timbers near the keel that support the mast step area.

Just something I found in a boat that I redecked.
