The New Mast Gate……!!

As we all know, Ovington have remade the deck mould to the Mk X and that until you look carefully it looks very similar to the old one – a reduction in non-slip areas, a slightly altered rear bulkhead.

What else ?  Well I didn’t spot the fact that the mast gate looks a bit longer. The position of the back of the gate is defined by the rules, so they have made the gate a little longer by extending the front further forward a shade.  So we get more mast control in a stiff breeze – but quite possibly the mast lever needs a little alteration to accommodate the increased mast travel.
