Thomas Nielsen replied to paul anderson's discussion mast repair in the group TIKI 26
"I have seen a similar issue at the mast base.  Instead of gluing on a rubble patch how about coating the bottom in 3M 5200.  You can trowel on a thin coat and drive it into the wood then build up a layer as a pad. "

"Hey Tom. Just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration with your excellent Tsunamichaser blog. I was forever drooling over it, and you're largely to blame for my (currently half) Ulua build. Cheers mate. "

hey tom i have found your insights into building your 26 very helpful,not to mention the practical stuff.now that you have sailed her for a while is there anything you would add or do differently with hindsight.

Hey, I left a message for Scott Viers as well; I'm an aspiring Tiki builder in Vancouver BC, looking to stop by, either on March 3 or March 10 in Seattle. If you're up to it, I'd like to come see Tsunamichaser. Let me know if that might work somehow. -- justobella@hotmail.com
