Re: [macgregor19sailboats] Rear Mast Holder Extension
- In case you ever work on the inside of your boat when
the mast is down, an extension for the rear mast

boat railings and a short piece of copper pipe. If
you don't have a pop riveter, screws or epoxy will
work for fastening the two pieces together. The
Aluminum tubing is the same OD as the mast holder and
the copper is a standard size. The length of the
aluminum I used is 32 ".

Good sailing to all, Mike
