For those who have the Right-On trailers you will soon find out the paint has a lot to be desired - or not - depending on how you read that. I have repainted the area under the bow twice now and have a thought for you. Keep in mind I sail... Jul-28-19 14:11:19

I'd advise to get a Cullen short rig sail. Then you simply remove the top section, fashion a cap for the top of the mid section and you're good to go. Makes it so you can use the same mast pieces for both sails. :) Jul-18-19 06:30:51

Just a heads up on the Force5 facebook page - fun with historic photos! With only 4 to 5 years with you all - I have barely a clue. Just leads to my admiration for all the time you all have spent together! Thanks Chris - good stuff Jun-29-19 17:15:58

I have a mast and boom that I want to refinish. Currently it has PPG brand epoxy automotive paint on it that has gotten scuffed up a bit. It has held up well and just repainting is certainly an option. I was thinking about powder coating it... Apr-20-19 07:41:26

Probably a safe bet. Lots of people use Awlgrip for spars, but again, the extreme mast bend thing. Good ol' rattle-can Rustoleum is a low-cost risk factor. :) Apr-22-19 06:58:08
