I recently replaced the broken-when-I-got-it furler strap on my Bravo. It is really hard to clip in; I need to lean into the mast to make the connection.
I was wondering if the mast isn't sitting high enough in the frame, it was in a wreck of some sort before I bought it. I took the mast ball off, and it looks like the post has been sawed off, and there is not a washer in sight. The post is 1-1/8" from the top of the base to the top of the post. Is this proper, or should I be looking to replace it?
