Hull liner crack at forward end of centerboard trunk

Postby agprice22 » Mon Aug 14, 2017 10:10 pm

Has anyone experienced a hull liner crack at the forward end of the centerboard trunk? I am hoping this has nothing to do with the mast compression post!

Thanks,
Andrew

I suspect that most of us never look under the cover of the centerboard trunk. Mine was fine when I replaced the centerboard several years ago and I have not looked since.

Recently, Tony Smith and I discussed cap shroud tension and he was concerned that too much could cause to high a load on the post in the cabin holding up the mast. I think he was mainly concerned with the load on the boat hull, not just the post. All theoretical. of course.
