drilling in mast
« on: March 02, 2018, 09:28:41 AM »
In a standard mast /wiring configuration, will I have any problems drilling holes for the track for the whisker pole?
Will I hit wires?
I know masts wiring vary...
Thanks!
Edith

For what its worth, here's a view inside of my 1977 OEM mast.  Note the wire channel is welded in place slightly off center.  YMMV
