Looking very smart! How much does the new mizzen weigh?
Hope you cruise goes well.

Hi Gerald
Sorry i didnt see your post. Have been busy!
I didnt weigh them in the end but i did manhandle them into a shed to laminate the last top section. I had to ship it in two parts to make it fit in a shipping container. The local guy in Findhorn who actually worked for a time with the freewind masts company in Inverness did the joining. I have no data but it looks and feels the same as the old one? I still have the old one in two bits. Its possible its a bit lighter.

I have now sailed 2 seasons with it and im happy. Certainly the inbuilt track is much smoother and has reduced the friction when putting sails up. The paint job makes the boat look better too.

How is your boat and hows the season going for you.

All the best
