Find out why they needed to replace the mast and boom and look for damage that might be associated with a dismasting.

Re: Grand Soleil 54

Thanks for the advise. I was told the goose neck broke during a race and was not properly fixed. During their ORC rally in the Atlantic Ocean in 7 kts of wind they started to hear strange noise from the mast and it suddenly broke. As for damage I was told the mast punctured the deck but it was fixed. I’m running a survey soon anything in specific I need to tell the surveyor
