Agree, remove some stitches from the batten pocket. You can also remove stitches right next to the break location and then slide the batten out the side of the pocket.

Use a stitch ripper or very ...

Purple area? I see blue and yellow.

The blue area consists of several overlapping dacron patches. The X-ply may also be sandwiched inside. When all of those patches are stacked on top of one a ...

I also enjoyed Andy’s posts on this forum. I had the opportunity to sail with him once during a trip to OBX around 2010. There was one very windy day blowing 3.5 - 4.0 at the Canadian Hole with on ...

Yesterday evening I had very limited time to sail in mellow flat water and just sailed with them about 1/2 inch separated. Somehow while inserting the mast, I expect that they sometimes get separate ...

PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Tue Dec 29, 2020 3:01 pm   Subject: Bent mast
