Wow. That's stout.

I really need to get an expert on a boat like mine so he/she can walk around and look at the various mounting possibilities. I just don't know enough at this point. Don't know the downward force on the mast, don't know how strong the fiberglass is at various points on my boat, don't know if I can get by without compression posts. Basically, I don't know squat!
