Subject: Mast step fiberglass compression issues
Info: (10848 views) Posted: Tuesday 11-10-09 02:21:06 PM
The early hulled boats had problems with the bulk heads warpping due to compression issues. I rebuilt and enforced the bulkhead on Opus (hull#2) and I know Wile E. Coyote was reinforced (hull #11). I think the problem was fixed around hull #35 when they extended the bulk head supports below the forward v-berth flooring. I know #56 had the strengthened bulkhead, and all the newer numbered boats.

But never had any issues with the actual core under the mast itself. Sounds like water got in there somehow.
