working on the mast

When performing the regular mast inspection from the bosun's chair, Alex noticed a small crevice corrosion in one of the cap shroud tangs at the top of the mast. Happy to realize that just a few days before we were supposed to leave, and not by having the whole mast fall down while on the open sea. Mast is now removed and at the yard and we'll be working on replacing fittings and glassing the wooden spreaders (rotten) for a few days. This came at the right time obviously, will feel much better for us to sail off when we know that all has been taken care of. This boat is slowly but surely getting as safe as we want it to be.
