While I was beating to windward in fairly large seas the cables
that are run inside the mast
must have come loose from whatever was holding them and now I can hear them clunking around whenever the boat sways past the vertical.
From the sound it makes, it seems that it is the lower section that is affected.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to how this can be fixed without pulling the mast
out (this was already done only 18 months ago to paint
mast, fit LED spreader lights, replace standing rigging
Note: Mast is keel
stepped with an opening about 1.5" wide on the bottom 18"
Thanks in advance for any advice.
