  1. Hi, I had to deal with this more than once, just go above or below the existing holes an inch or two. The fitting has come down over the years. I am at 41" above the deck band, remains of other mast pieces I have are 36-42". These were all built by/for top teams here on the west coast.
  2. That is an amazing amount of work! This is from someone who repaired 8266 after it spent the night on Alcatraz, my project might be a cake walk in comparison with your project? I need an after shot. And a photo of the finished boat.
  3. Shoreline, is meh, was better when they rented Laser now it is just Capri 14.2 slugs, other options, Berkeley I think they still do that not sure of the program (breeze on venue), and the new player is Alameda community sailing center, looks to be a good deal, limited sail area, and of course TISC.
  4. That could be one approach.....I am not recommending this idea, as it is bad for the the environment. However, chain saws work well.... to remove the offending tree, again not recommended for environmental reasons. So we are left with chainsaw and laser, is this the lowest environmental impact solution for removing the problem?
  5. lighter fluid works well.
  6. Bay area FD, $350 on Craigslist What is about FDs and Thistles? Have too many boats already! https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/boa/d/flying-dutchman-20-foor/6582330564.html
