    Question Tips for stepping/dropping mast

    Do a little research on making a gin pole or maybe someone nearby has one. Whatever method tie a loop around the mast, then the free end of the line to the spinnaker pole bracket allowing the loop to go just below the spreaders so you don't lift it by the spreaders. Two people works best.

    Question Aft Stanchion base

    So what I can find is a Schaefer 36-01 which has as 5 degree angle versus 14 degree which is the original base. What have people used to replace and will a few degrees make that much of a difference?

    I'm in Connecticut. Hopefully out of Niantic Bay Yacht Club. They have a small, 5 or 6 boat fleet there that races Wednesday nights. There is a strong PHRF fleet in the area for weekend racing as well.

    Mysterious bilge water

    Awesome!! Thank you for the information. I'm in the process of purchasing a J/24. It has some little things I'd like to do and then spend as much time sailing / racing and enjoying time on the water.
