    A sunfish. You are the one who suggested moving the halyard down about a foot - that took care of the issue. Thank you

    Gooseneck sliding

    Thank you, ok it's at the spot the rigging manual says to place it - came that way to me, but I will give that a try - I've got to do something different!

    Gooseneck sliding

    The knot is secure. I thought the gooseneck should hold in place on the mast not slide down at an angle and allow the tip of the spar to scratch the deck?

    Gooseneck sliding

    Thanks for the thought - I will rotate it upward a bit and give that a try. It doesn't slide on the spar it slides down the mast.

    Gooseneck sliding

    Thanks, it's not sliding on the spar it slides down the mast and drops the spars onto the deck - I have wrapped tape on the mast to no avail - will try adding a bit more and then order a new gooseneck as it may be worn out like you mentioned . I appreciate your thoughts.

    Gooseneck sliding

    I purchased a used boat, the gooseneck will not stay in the correct position - it slides down dropping the front of the spars onto the deck and rubbing the heck out of the deck - is the gooseneck too big or is there something I’m doing incorrectly?
