Purchased a 79 Nacra 5.2 hanger queen(great shape, was sailed only 3 times in the last 2 years). My question concerns the mast base retaining pin. Once the mast is raised & secured, should the pin be removed or stay in place while sailing . I have sailed with it in place, but am 2nd guessing myself & thinking maybe it should be removed.
All my prior experience has been with a Hobie 16 which has
the pin removed.
I will be posting more questions, as I learn the boat. The
Pics in the Gallery helped a bunch in setting up this cat.
