Mast dropped!!

Postby Jeremyfisher » Tue Oct 29, 2019 4:06 pm

Had a lucky escape. Was derigging the boat for the winter, luckily I was at the front of the boat when the mast collapsed! The split pin through the cotter pin fixing the forestay to the A frame had obviously rusted through and the cotter pin worked its way out. As I still had the mainsail on, it cushioned the fall a bit so little damage was done, apart from a slight dent in the boom. Shall have to keep an eye on that in the future. Can't imagine what would have happened had I been sailing!
