Re: [Amel] Super Maramu mast vibration
Hi all:toggle quoted message Show quoted text
Interesting discussion and good to know that others have experienced this. In my case I isolated this to vibration of the spare balooner halyard also described as a spinaker halyard (an optional exrernal halyard fitted just to stbd at the main mast head. It is stowed at the toerail to stbd and taken on the stbd lower main mast winch). Depending on how tight it is it will thrum at various frequencies at various wind speeds. I have found that a bungee cord around it to the boomerang will stop the vibration. Besides this the mast will pump at times (by this I mean a very low frequency 1-2 cycle per sec vibration) in certain loading conditions.
Just a couple of more thoughts as to possible causes.
