The mast is wrapped with 6 oz glass tape When it goes green I'll cut the luff groove slot.
Got all the parts back on the mast. I made the pin that holds teh spreaders in place. it's a 5/16 inch bolt witht he head and threads cut off. I used my angle grinder to make it fit the spreaders. Drilled holes and used cotter pins so it won't come off. The mast actually went back into a straight position. Just has a little twist right at the spreaders. Nothing to write home about. I'm satisfied.
