I'm pulling the 6 year old deck
stepped spruce mast
. I haven't done this work before on a wooden mast
so I'm looking to make sure I cover all my bases while it's down.
is cracking. What type of paint
is recommended? I know there's a cheaper kind that cracks after a few years but the mast needs to be pulled that often for inspection
The wires are all corroded inside the mast. Will be replacing wires and upgrading nav lights to LED, but there's also no wind
indicator or antennaes of any kind. I can't afford an SSB
right now but can get the antenna
up there. Would that be a good idea? Also was thinking about AIS
. Not sure what else is good to have up there. Was thinking of adding an extra halyard
Any other comments are much apprrciated!
