    Question About Trailer

    The HF trailer can be made highway ready. I've done a few. Bigger wheels check, longer tounge check, custom cut chocks check, + a welder to tack it all together. It all adds up. + add in any inspections by your state. Often its a less pita to buy one. John

    What's in the mast?

    "I happen to have some unopened 2000E thats only about 16 months old which should be enough for the job." Thats the best reason I've ever heard for using the stuff. I thought that reason was going to be more along the lines of "I read about it in Practical Sailor" I really hate that rag.

    What's in the mast?
