Looking forward to sailing on Wolf. Got a 460 mast delivered this week and Im itching to try it. Kansas Eric got me inspired to check out the Chinook masts on my sails and I ordered a 90% 460 RDM used one from Second Wind-275$ total with delivery to the United cargo terminal. If it doesnt work it will be "only" the third incompatible 460 mast that Ive owned .
Looks better today, but I gotta work. Yesterday was on the light side-Retro 7.5/ Atom 110. Tested the Chinook RDM 460 on land only and honestly I'm not blown away. It looks acceptable for the 6.5 Retro, but if I have to kick the bottom batten after a transition / like I do now/ it will have to go, for the 7.5 it was far off and I didn't bother taking it to the water. Also heavy, heavier then my 490 Gulftech RDM
On the bright side I met a couple of expert windsurfers-Jim and Jill / please correct me if I have the names wrong/ and actually Jill told me that she has ran the first windsurfing school on Wolf Lake /have there been others too?!/ back in the 80s. Apparently the good old pond has seen a much better days! Those who sail north of Montrose certainly know them very well, but I had the honor just yesterday.
