Just bought a 1987 Catalina 27 on the cheap. Hadn't been sailed in 4 years. Lots of work to be done but have an issue with the port jib halyard. The prior owner told me that it had dropped in the mast and I was expecting to have to fix that. When pulling out the line, the line sticks right inside the mast. in looking at it, it appears that a slip knot had been tied on the end (maybe to stop it from falling into the mast???). I want to unscrew the cover and investigate more. Does anyone know if this opening can be unscrewed and opened? There are six screws that would have to come out. Picture attached. Thanks.
