Just worried (bought boat 5 years ago, surveyed fine, but I never did anything to the spreaders since taking ownership). Previous owner also had significantly more money
than I do (boat was barn stored without mast every year and commissioned properly every year, with varnishing and painting work
outsourced; I can go bankrupt just thinking about that in the New York
Can I get aluminum spreaders to use the existing brackets? If not - why not?
Also: the mast is not original to the boat (don't know why it was replaced, happened before previous owner), but probably still more than 20 yrs old.
