    Like the idea about tying the mast down in the middle to the jib cleats - I'll definitely add that. Just curious if anyone's aft mast stand bounces up and down while trailering since it's really only held down by gravity. Unless I'm misunderstanding Paul... I thought it sounded like you just...

    Aft mast stand lateral support? Just added a front mast stand to my trailer and put a 16" aft mast stand like shown earlier in this thread where my rudder goes for safer trailering. But I'm curious now that I installed the aft mast stand (simply sliding the pins in) as to how you keep the mast...

    Sail down, boom up?

    I picked up a 1982 Capri 14.2 "fixer-upper" a year ago and have been doing my best to learn the ins and outs of this particular boat. Perhaps my greatest annoyance to date (besides the parts I realized were missing after I bought the boat) is I have not found a good way to have the sail stowed...
