I'm a bit confused about the rigging of the halyard on this? There's a small loop that sits right in front of the mast, then there's a cleat to port of the mast that I assume you would tie off too. But then Lee's picture shows a pulley attached to the front of the vang? I don't think mine has that. Any tips on how it's actually supposed to rig up?
From what I've heard, something like JB Weld is strong enough to seal up the plastic shell. Just smear it in there and make sure you squish it all the way into the crack. When it hardens, you can sand it smooth. If its a serious crack, you might have to do some actual fiberglass work to patch it (which isn't a HUGE deal, as I've been told.)hi, all,
I bought a flying fish about 20 years ago and used it part of one season before it started to take on water and sit heavy and low. then we noticed some cracks in the bow and haven't used it since. still have all the original parts and want to try again. any suggestions as to how to fix the cracks?
Interested, Where is the mast located?While going through my parents old barn, I discovered an original "like new" AMF Alcott Flying Fish mast, complete with hardware.
It had been ordered for their FF, but was never used. If I remember correctly, there was only one OEM mast left when they ordered it.
Anyone know if there is any interest in this mast? Thanks for any info you can supply.
