Stus-List Rig - crack?

The word from Navtec is "replace", which doesn't surprise me. I don't see
that they have much incentive to tell me to sail with it as is, from both a
liability perspective as well as a sales perspective. Oh well, our short
sailing season just got shorter :(

it's going to be about two weeks before I can get the stick up again. And
then I'm not sure where I'll be putting it up. We had an agreement for this
Friday for me and a few other boats from our small club to use one of the
larger club's cranes. I'm missing out on that party so it looks like I'll
be going to one of the sketchy port guys down on Cherry Street. I've had
experiences with one of those guys and it was terrible, so I guess I'll try
the other guy. Unless any Toronto listers have other suggestions?
