C.9.1(c) Varnishing the bowsprit

Postby EdWilkinson » Wed Jun 04, 2014 10:15 pm

My spinnaker pole is peeling, has fibres exposed and is badly in need of some varnish.

Rule C.9.1(c) reads:(c) Painting of the mast is permitted, which may be either varnish or paint

Rule C9.6(a)(1) reads: Bowsprits may not be modified from the supplied specification.

Does this mean that I may not varnish the spinnaker pole as the rules currently stand? Or does this count as a repair under C.9.1(b)?

Cheers

Ed
