Stepping along…

Sailbirds originally came with the mast stepped just aft of the forward aka, but the later models came with the mast stepped ON the aka, a much stronger way of doing it. I’ve decided to move our mast step to the aka. This will involve the base of the mast moving forward about 5 or 6 inches, but I can cover the forward CE movement by raking the mast aft a bit. Plus, moving the jib back a few inches will somewhat negate the balance shift too.
