Hi,
Today after 2 sleepless nights because of thoughts about glueing my carbon mast pieces I did it at last and it took very little time. I think building my boat has taught me preparation for any task is the key to easy execution.
I first stuck on the 2 inserts lots of plastic tape around it like on the picture until it was the same diameter as the long pipes to make sure that it is completely straight lying on the table after glueing.

Mast head and middle insert ready for_gluing:

and then I mixed 25 grams of epoxy with 14 grams of hardener 3 teaspoons of silica and one spoon of wood flour and brushed first the insides of the long pipes and then the inserts themselves and slid them together wiping any excess epoxy away finished in 10 minutes.

Mast insert and head glued to the 3 meter long pipes:

Great stuff, Karl.

--Well, and then there's fairing.

But sorting out the solutions to odd problems you've never encountered before in life is one of the great pleasures attending almost all aspects of sailing. Well done!

Hi,
My carbon mast is finished and and my son suggested we should go for a sail on Saturday. Getting the boat ready at the slip was very fast with his strong help and he raised the mast in 15 seconds and then he insisted to make the following picture:

Me in front of the boat just before we put it in the water :

and here it is in the water next to the boardwalk :

and then I can only show a picture of the boat on the lake taken by my sister from the shore. I took this picture even that it is far away you can see my junk rig not much else.

Image

We had a very nice time on the water although with practically next to no wind for four and a half hours.

You are so right when I was 5 years old my mother went up a lower mountain right next to this one and all the way up I feared that the big one ( Traunstein ) will fall on us. Must have been the perception of a five year old.
