Mast-track fix

Post by Andrew B. Watki » Fri, 15 Aug 1997 04:00:00


G'day All,

One of the guys I sail with ventured out on the weekend on
his old (maybe 10 years?? Prob. about an 1987 board anyway)
Tyronsea (unsure of the name) 295 and promptly had the
mast track blow out of the board. He'd like to know if
there is some preferred way to fix this? Is glassing
it in the only option, or is there something stronger??
It's a foam core/plastic board, and the mast track itself
has a set of 3 stainless steel self tapping screws. Any
suggestions of the best fix?? (We told him "buy a new
board"...)

Cheers,
Andrew.

DON'T FIX IT YOURSELF!!! you must remember that the next time it will
break can be in hard conditions or far out - don't play with your life
