Internal mast hakyards
Posted 20 January 2019 - 08:53 PM
Im thinking some sort of expanding filler below the lowest exit box, or some other thing to dampen the noise. Theres only the one electrical wire that comes out at the base. Sole mounted mast.
Problem is definitely on the inside.

That is to help prevent the mast filling with water if the cat is flipped, making it very hard to right..
Way back in a small cat we had, came with packing foam chips in the mast, which I suspect was to stop ropes slapping. It worked but at times halyards were harder to pull with bits of foam flying out of the exit pulley. Good question, I wonder how spar makers deal with it. VP might have some clue.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
