As I'm continuing the progress on my Starwind, I've hit a bit of a snag. On the port side, pictured here, the wall has some delamination
, and while it's not rotten all the way through, I'd like to go ahead and replace it. However, as you can see, the standing rigging
bracket is very securely attached to it. Is it safe to briefly unbolt this bracket to replace the wall or do I need a crane on the mast
to loosen any standing rigging
On the starboard side, the wall is still in good shape, but I seem to have a leak in the cabin
where the standing rigging bolts pass through the ceiling. Again, to properly seal that I'd have to loosen the bracket on the side to get sealant
around the bolts. No idea if that's safe with the mast
Thanks for any info on this.
