After a full turtle incident, that led to an hour in cold water until a fishing boat came along, I've decided to install a baby bob. Does anyone have an install photo of a bob on a comp tip mast?

Thank you! I picked up a bob a while back and the instructions were missing. That's exactly what I needed. I'm not a big fan of drilling holes in anything, but my crew is terrified of going over again.

Despite the "you dont need one of those" crowd. I put a bob on my 16. Glad I did as it makes solo righting super easy. Only the last foot or two of the mast is under water when laying on its side. Pops right up!

Make sure your mast is sealed to
