My wife and I are living aboard
a 1980 Formosa
47 in California
. The mast
stepped. The mast
is settling, or sinking. The shrouds are out of adjustment room, and still extremely loose.
The foot of the mast sits on fiberglass
, and has formed a bowl shape, due to the weight of the mast.
I have heard of this happening to other sailboats, and have heard it has been repaired, but cannot find anybody that has any specifics, or cost estimates.
Does anybody know what is under the fiberglass
, and/or construction specifications from the Formosa
yard? Anybody that has repaired this problem? Pictures of construction, or any other information? We would appreciate learning
any knowledge that can be passed along!
