Any tips please on attaching moderately loaded fittings to a (not brand new) carbon mast.

having never used or extensively looked at a carbon mast im not 100% but the only way i can think you would do it is with special carbon rivets

Top tip is whenever possible to fabricate carbon fittings and bond them into place.

Thanks Jim, I'll make lashing and or bonding work rather than potentially damaging fixings.
