Seatrend All Star Mast Track Question

Seatrend All Star Mast Track Question

Post by Kip Wyli » Mon, 25 May 1998 04:00:00


I just got a Seatrend All Star, and sailed it for the first time on
Saturday. Apparently I'm used to a mast track position or boom height
that is not acceptable as I trapped the boom against the little
stainless "flapper" AVS plate and curled it up a little. This happened
during one of my many water start setups. It seems that the boom is
meant to never contact the tail of the board. So my question: What is so
good about setting the mast track far back with this particular board
design insofar as it's early planning capabilities? I'm having to learn
some new skills without the ability to rest the  boom on the tail of the
board.

Hey Kip
Set it in the middle, this is the only place you will ever need it.
I also tried a few settings and found the advice from the guys at Seatrend
to be spot on.

Rock On Seatrend keep up the good work
