Ok on to the next problem. I hope the pics help... Im running thru everything and getting parts list together before I order parts.
I wanted to make sure mast is water tight. As for the mast base it looks like the previous owner used wood screws to hold it together. The mast has one hole that has cracked and the others are worn. The base also has one bad spot.
So do I cut mast down?
Do I just drill new holes and install the proper rivets?
Do I need to do anything to bottom of mast to make it stronger? Maybe add aluminum around bottom and tig weld it?
