Re: [MessaboutW] Boat repair

Cal I appreciate your advise on my leak
Picture 1 shows the boat Joel Smith 11 ft
Picture 2 shows the relationship to the mast step. The line comes down from the forward end of the boom (Lug Sail), goes thru the small roller and back to the right to a black friction clamp under the seat. I usually sit on the bottom behind the center seat.
Picture 3/4 show the crack developing on the right side in the picture (port side).
When I sail I pull down very hard on this line as it raises the aft end of the boom giving me some head room even thought I’m sitting on the bottom. I think that is my problem. So two questions. What can I do to spread the load and what can I do to repair and strengthen that area?
Thanks to you all
