I have some blueprints that came with her in Mich, i don't recall if rigging is detailed.
They are old but cool, plan to get them cleaned up and posters made someday.
Have not unpacked camera yet, Zodiac still where my back seat was etc.
Busy w/ Capt Tolley etc.
Will look at pics in this infernal machine IF I can find some.
Best,
Mike

Having a dedicated thread would really be neat.

So trying to figure all that out. Love that PVC one. 1982 marine trader Europa 36 is what I have. Thanks
We have a PT38 Sedan, similar in style to your Marine Trader Europa. Our mast is made from a section of a sailboat mast, you can quite often find a top section from a broken mast at a riggers shop and with some welding/paint make a very nice mast. Here are some photos of ours, first one folded down to fit in the boathouse and second one underway.......

I always found the Europa type yachts look better with arches rather than masts.
A couple of babes lounging on the fore deck wouldn't hurt either.

My '76 34 has the original mast its Taiwanese Steel, er, pot metal with a wooden boom.

These are great boats if you're very handy, everything is repairable, and they can be had cheap. Been working on mine 17 years, any questions ask away.

Height of the mast?? But I see what you mean by the look because the top is quite longer as in to have an arch instead of a mast. But been told if your going somewhere u need the sail back there for stability in a Rowling sea state.

Sorry for delay:
My mast is wood (painted). 146" tall. Square in base (5") then rounded down to 3" at top.

I just posted specs and picture on my blog: https://libertytrawler.wordpress.com/

I think steadying sails on trawlers of our size are over-rated. At the most it might help you keep pointed into the wind at anchor. To stop rolling it would have to much larger than you want to deal with on a daily basis. Sailboats get away with it because they are sailboats and that's what they do.

When you come to the realization that an arch is what you want be sure the arch can be tilted or lowered down to about windshield level especially if you intend to do any of the canals in New York or Canada.
