Need Hardware for a mast

I think the ropelight palm tree is plenty.

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

I removed the mast from my Sundowner 30 with no plans to replace.
I have everything. Bronze deck plate and mast base (hinged). Bronze mast bracket for stays. SS chain plates and stays. Plus the mast.
I have no idea how to price and know shipping would be high.
Thoughts?

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

So what do you mean by mast hardware, boom, spreaders, pulley, lights?

Last spring I had anew aluminum mast and boom made at a local weld shop.*

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

I have the mount on the boat but not the mate on the bottom of the mast I could have one made but have no idea what it looked like. I do not think they will sell this part at the marine store?

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

IS the mast is to look pretty and hold rope lights , or to use to hoist a 13Ft Boston Whaler aboard?

There will be a BIG difference in the hardware.

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

Dom:

Here is what I did: My C&L 44 came with a puny mast mounted on the upper deck, with stays that interfered with accessing the upper deck safely. The first time I used it for lifting, I lifted a Sabot hull, under 50 lb. and the cast aluminum base broke, causing all to come crashing down.
First I had a proper tabernacle base fabbed of Stainless. Then, when I changed up from the Sabot to a laser, 150 lb., I relocated the mast to the lower deck, so that I could do away with the stays and support the mast at the upper deck, raised the height of the masthead by a few feet, lengthened the boom so that it would extend far enough over the side to actually pick up the laser. The new mast is made of aluminum pipe, cheap stuff that is readily available, and has the spreaders from the original mast welded on up high, lights, anchor light, radar, steaming light, flag halyards, and most important, no stays to interfere with access to the upper deck. I have noted some minor bending when lifting the laser, so I sometimes put a safety line from the spreader bases to the rail opposite the load, but this comes off right away after the lift. I have to lower the mast to enter my shelter, so I had a two legged support fabbed of 1.25" square aluminum, and I lower it using only a line to the radar support. That method works well for me, but is too heavy for my wife to attempt. Simple, effective, not overly expensive, and looks good too.

RE: Need Hardware for a mast

Next question is does the mast need to lower to get under bridges faster?
