After a gorgeous day and peaceful night at Baby Owl Cove, our luck changed. As I was applying anti-corrosion treatment to the mast I discovered a crack ~1' long near the base of the mast. Some online searching has revealed other 393's with similar issues (due to freezing of water that doesn't drain well) and have also possibly seen it in pictures back to when we lived in WA. Much more to follow, and our spring break plans are now possibly on hold, but we plan to meet this challenge like any other on the boat. Wine, anyone?
