OK all you mechanical engineers, metallurgists, and old salts put there, here's the opportunity...
I have a mast that has a nice gentle bow, created due to the boat being blown on to it's side, and laying there for a long
time...maybe several months. I've created a jig where I can over bend/bow the mast in the opposite direction and it seems to be working, however very
I've moved the mast/jig setup to the center of the yard where it gets direct sunlight all day (and for the last 10 days, 100 degree ambient temperature)
My question is, should I release the tension when the sun goes down and reapply first thing in the morning?
Or leave tension on all the time?
Will having tension off in the cooler overnight temps (~75) help speed the process?
Will one method, over the other, speed the process?
Maybe this will just take...several months
Still have a 1.5 inches to go
