Re: Masthead removal

When you all installed your tricolors how did you do your alignment. I found this difficult with the mast out of boat. I also fouled up by using a taller than necessary stand off and wound up creating a little chunk of dirty air for the wind instrument transducer so when sailing very deep I would g...
