Looking at these photos do you think I could file the stops a bit more square and sail the Hobie for this summer and change both parts over the winter??
I am a rec. sailor and would hate to have the launching of this boat delayed any longer... I am in Vancouver Canada and had to order new rigging all the way from Toronto....
thanks for your advice in advance...

Can any damage can occur with the mast rotating more than normal or is it just spilling off more wind???
