Wood/Epoxy Optimist dinghy mast step dimensions

The so  called Unofficial Guide for the boat gives a mast step block as 100 x 180 x 60mm in size.


The drawing shows the footprint and the required shape.

We looked at the size given and then read the rules and saw that we can down size it to save weight.


So our Optimist Wood/Epoxy kit has a pre shaped mast step block in it, this one is laminated from three pieces of meranti wood.

The kit it belongs to will be shipped to the USA and with a North Sail and Harken deck gear pack.
