  6. mast float

    hello i just got an old maricat to learn how to sail and have a bit off fun .was just wondering how big mast floats have to be to work or if someone could put a photo of one going to check the mast for leaks than tie a 20 liter plastic drum to it .i tipped it over the other day and it went turtle virtually straight away as being inexperienced i had no idear how to right it luckily a bloke on a jetski  came and helped me and he new what to do. it still  took a lot to get upright two 100kg men
