sailorjohn Posted August 19, 2007 Report Share Posted August 19, 2007 I am new to Nacra with the recent purchase of a 5.0.I am finding the mast raising & lowering to be a daunting experience. The securing pin seems difficult to insert & removal is difficult as it seems to prevent the mast seating properly. My friend has shown me how to step the mast without the pin but I just wonder whether it might slip off the ball at a critical stage at some time. should I use a smaller diam. pin? I was advised that rotating the mast 90 degree helps prevent slipping off the ball. Is there any info available on mast stepping the the 5.0? The sailing is just great compared to the old Hobie 14! thanks John Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
