I have questions regarding my Comp-Tip mast. The only reference I have is the instructions for retrofit of an existing mast.
For the H16, instructions state cut mast at 18'-3 3/8". This H16 mast measures, from the bottom of the mast, not including the base, 18'-8 3/4". This leaves about 5" of aluminum above the mast tang. Is this the right length? The luff track of the Comp-Tip itself measures 7'-4 5/16".
The mast has been countersunk to accept a #12 flat head phillips screw on each side a couple of inches down from the top of the aluminum, I'm assuming they're not machine screws (or maybe they are and that's whay the Tip is loose). Is this a factory mast?
I will take it apart, reseal top and bottom (with noodle, thanks Jamie
), rivet on a new base and epoxy in the Comp-Tip. Looking for a "double check" before I cement it all together.
