Re: Whats this sticking out of my mast?

Pull out the sail and take it down. Sail is out of the way and halyard is available.

Re: Whats this sticking out of my mast?

Hi all,
Just wanted to get back to you all to say thanks for all the advice. Its been a busy year but I have been sailing without ‘digital’ wind information …..

As suggested the ‘thing’ sticking out of my mast is an intentional part of the furler system to stop it from rotating. I did purchase a new wind transducer and finally went up the mast this weekend …. I don’t like heights but I also believe in being self sufficient (even on a hunter). So I dropped the main, and headed up on its halyard (the only one that goes to the top as the spin and jib only to the point, and there was no way I was going up on the topping lift, which was used as a safety). The new device was plug and play. I had to calibrate the system by doing circles and am now back to functional.

Thanks,

E
