A couple of years ago I bought a new sail for my H17. Can't raise it because the bolt rope pops out of luff track near mast head. I read on Hobie Forum that solution is to install luff track update onto the Comp tip. Here's the problem: luff track update is a solid piece of metal (per prior posts, earlier versions of this might have been made off plastic). It doesn't seem like the new luff track can be installed without removing the mast head. I've tried to drill out the 6+ rivets shown in this picture:https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/z ... directlink
... however, the drill will not budge through the rivets (there was one freak rivet where the drill popped through easily as expected). I tried a small drill bit thinking that using a smaller diameter would at least get the puncture started ... but the drill bit broke off inside the rivet. The post below makes it look like someone has managed to get the mast head off:viewtopic.php?f=13&t=34716&start=0
Any help ideas about what to do here???
