Thanks for the excellent responses. Curiously I was also walking nearby on the beach last year when a SC-21 was towed in from Lake Michigan by a jet ski. I saw the broken-off mast step. That owner didn't know who Bill Roberts was, and didn't want to talk to me. so I left. Understand check with Aquarius, and heliarc welding is ok for such oversize parts.
PS: Its Lake Michigan- NO CORROSION exists! That Boston Whaler SC15 looked brand new!
