    Had the jib up rather than my big genny... Slapped the traveler to leeward and we were good to go. Cruised at hull speed most of the day. Super fun!

    Kyle, my envelope with the money order was returned a couple weeks ago. It was stamped non existent address. Can you send me a good address so I can reimburse you . sorry for the delay, very busy. Oh I saw your post about your sink drain ,scary! That's something I'm worried about also.

    Hello Kyle,

    I'm interested in a Commander mast step. Is this something your C&C guy can help me with since he already has the set up? Thanks in advance for your help.

    I sent my friend a note. He arranged it through someone else. Will advise ASAP.

    My mast step is also questionable. Please include me in any feedback. Thanks.

    My guy is checking on it. It was produced in June of 2011, so I'll hope that his source didn't toss the setup info. No clue on cost.

    Here is a link to the aluminum step photos - http://www.pearsonariel.org/discussi...3283#post23283

    The appendix to the manual has a tech drawing of the mast step if you need to recreate the setup data.

    Mast Step

    The drawing in the manual is great. I had to rebuild mine. The manual had all the necessary dimensions. I am sure any CNC shop can make one. I rebuilt mine out of solid G-10 and glassed over it. I had to recore the area anyway so it is solid glass all the way down to the compression post. I also recored with solid glass plate where all the mast base blocks will mount. I am having a thin stainless wear plate fabricated to go over the top to prevent the mast base from digging into the new glass. Here are a couple of pictures. One that shows the basic structure before I laid the outer skin and the other after I glassed it over and primed it.

    Clean!

    I haven't heard back from my mast base source. I'll nudge him later this week and keep y'all posted.

    mast step

    Thanks, Kyle.

    No pressure on my end. My old one is repairable but a new aluminum one would be nice.

    Wow, that season seemed short!! Lucky Dawg is on the hard. Only good news about that is she was hauled in time to avoid the strong midwest wind storms of last weekend.
    Photo is from Grand Haven where my office is - about 12 miles south of Lucky Dawg

    Golly, how do you keep the floor dry in your office?
