Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] MAIN MAST CORROSION [3 Attachments]
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It appears to be caused by corrosion at the base of the mast, and it appears serious. The only solution I know of is to pull the mast, and cut the corroded section out, which will shorten the mast a little. You will need a good rigger to figure out if he can compensate for the shortened mast with your existing rigging, or possibly have to put new rigging on the boat. Leaving it as is, you risk the base of the mast collapsing, and potentially causing a loss of the rig. I'm no expert, so seek professional advice from a good rigger.
Best of luck getting it figured out.
