limits on height of mast strut?

Post by Hiljoball » 05 Jun 2007, 06:44

Are there any limits on the placement of a mast strut?

Can it be higher than the lower limit mark?

(I see that there is a limit on checkstays if used - but I cannot find any similar limit on a mast strut)

Hi John,

The quick answers are:
Are there any limits on the placement of a mast strut?
No
Can it be higher than the lower limit mark?
Yes

I imagine if was thought unnecessary to set a CR limit on the grounds that there’s a practical limit.

Just my personal opinion of course.

Cheers
