Re: Topping lift for F21?

Newt2u, thank you so much for taking the time to post these pics--very helpful! Is it possible to get a close up of how your lazy jacks are mounted to the boom? Mine are simply strapped to the cleat under the boom, which is not right. Would love to see what others have.

Re: F21 mast bolts at sleeve

Thanks for posting. Yeah it looks like the mast on mine was resleeved/ services some years ago so those are from that. I noticed a few missing. However I was able to find an extra one so now I have one to match. One thing I am having though is some rotation of the mast—-somewhere deep in the cabin. ...
