THE MAST STEP- NEW PROBLEM
While raising the mast, I discovered that the former owner had purchased and installed a part called the mast step plate. With this plate, one can attach additional pulleys. The plate is under the mast step The plate needs to be caulked to the deck. It appears that the caulking step was not done or the caulk has given way . In either event, This is a problem that needs to be corrected. I plan to call the technical support folks at Catalina Direct for more info on fixing this problem. Stay tuned for further details.
