Just as the southern French don't want anything to do with the Parisians
I can't believe anyone actually read any part of my "bio" on the
website.....but it's true, I did work for Hobie Cat of France 38 years ago.
As for sanding the inside first with sandpaper somehow attached to the
pole....it's not a bad idea. I don't know what they coated the inside of
the socket with.
I will admit that we actually "discovered" Nutella ( which is made by
Ferrero (sp?), an Italian company I think) when we were in Morocco
getting stoned.....but enough said about that.
You are welcome.....
