Cheermen pt 38 mast

hi 'forumites'.

My wife and I are the proud owner of a 1981 CHEERMEN PT 38 sedan trawler. Somewhere in her life, SAN-BAR had the mast removed and a radar arch installed. Not sure I like the arch and the 80's vintage radar is all but dead anyways. Does anyone have a picture of the mast they can share. I see Cheermen photos online but of course the mast is not shown well, what with canvas around the upper rails etc.

thanks!

Here are a couple of photos of our mast on Rochepoint, a 1985 PT38 Sedan. It is an aluminum section hinged to fold with two stainless supports on the aft section when raised.

When I get to the boat next I will get some better photos of it........

THANK YOU. Apart from the hinge is that the original design? I envisioned the original mast was wood. If it is aluminum even better as I can use it as a ground plane for a ham radio antenna. Our cabin top still has the pad for the mast and six threaded rods with nuts in place [ready to stub your toe!]

I just downloaded your photo to my laptop and use "preview" on it to rotate and crop it, then uploaded it again. I always upload from the laptop.....

I replaced the rotten wood mast on our '84 Fu Hwa sedan trawler. I disliked the shrouds that supported it since I found it easy to walk into them. I made the new mast of aluminum spi pole and built-up fiberglass components for the masthead. I used the original bronze hinged maststep. I made a tabernacle to retain the mast in place in lieu of the shrouds. There are pictures in my albums.

I considered a radar arch but cost and looks...

I like the cantilevered (out of the deck) hinged masts, as in the photos above, but the flybridge floor structure really would have to be looked at carefully! A cantilevered and hinged maststep could be made for a wood mast if you really wanted the varnished look.

BIG Thanks folks - the 'six bolt base' is what I have on the cabin top. As it turns out the prior owner of SAN-BAR has the mast in her garage in Michigan, so we'll rent a pick-up and go see what shape it's in. If nothing else I'll have a pattern for a new one. When I'm done anyone want to a radar arch for a cheermen cheap!?
