    Default Mast step

    Has anyone tried the rubber mast step sold by ENDLESS RIVER, does it work and does it stay glued in position please?

    Such a mast step is probably only of use for the smallest of downwind sails as the larger the sail area the larger the potential forces are on the mast thwart and foot. I am sure someone has used them successfully but beware if you are thinking of a larger sail for sailing upwind.

    I have a vinyl one - quite fiddly to place the mast, which is the biggest disadvantage. However I wanted the rig to be as minimal as possible and it fits the bill very well.
