Think this is going to be a really stiff mast - need to try again to get more kicker !
Found a piece of Mahogany for the maststep, and used a gravity clamp to epoxy it down. Neat place for a builders plate
I made socket for the gooseneck from a short lenth of stainless tube that I epoxied up with a bunch of carbon inside a plastic cup, with was the same rad as the ID of the boom, then bonded it in.
I am planning off boom sheeting, but as the boom section I have is quite deep and a bit of overkill, I am going to run the mainsheet inside the boom. This means opening up the boom to mount the ratchet and feed the sheet through.
Drilled Cut Ply deck and carbon added to reinforce + peel ply
