At the base of the mast a wooden “step” is built to help support it and keep it in place. I assembled the step with silica thickened epoxy and counter sunk wood screws. It needed a little shaping to make it fit into the hull. That was done with the random orbit sander. The screw heads will be covered with wood flour thickened epoxy.
