exhogger Posted February 7, 2012 Report Share Posted February 7, 2012 I have just taken posession of a Maricat 4.0 sail No 469. It seemed to be in pretty good condition considering its age which I am led to believe is about 25 or so yrs old. Took it out for my first sail on Sunday last and all went very well except that at one stage I knelt with most of my weight in the extreme rear corner of the tramp and heard what I thought was a 'Rip'. It turned out that it wasn't a rip in the tramp but that 5 of the rivets that hold the metal strip which holds the tramp edge in position have either broken or have pulled through. My question is, what would you experienced guys do. What is my next step. How would you tackle further inspection and repair. I hope I have'nt bought a dud. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
