1972 gulfstar 36 trawler mast & boom

I am trying to find a mast and boom for a 1972 Gulfstar 36' Trawler as the one that I have just purchased does not have one. I would appreciate any help in locating one for sale. I would also appreciate the dimensions of same (with an eye towards making one) with as much detail as possible (cable size & attach points) as to the rigging arrangements. Pictures would be very helpful. Thanks! gts1544 - George

PS - PM me and I will send my e-mail address to better communicate.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want one? For the looks? Having the staysail available to keep from rolling is nice, but there are other ways to accomplish the same thing (flopper stoppers). And having that mast sticking up there means that sometimes you cannot go under a bridge which you could otherwise go under with ease. I have a mast on my boat, because I do not need to go under bridges. But it really serves no particular purpose for me. I just like the looks of it. :-)

Kvw613, I tried to send my e-mail address and phone number via PM only to be told that since I was not a trusted member, the PM could not be sent. I have messaged the webmaster to find out how to rectify this problem. Expect to hear from me in the near future. Thanks. gts1544 -- George

jwnall, Thanks for the food for thought!

From what I've read elsewhere, the original mast and staysail on a Gulfstar has only about 60 square feet of sail area. This wouldn't be enough for roll reduction under power or get-home propulsion. You'd need a minimum of 10X the sail area on your boat for this.

However, It may be of some use for aligning the boat to the wind when at anchor, or perhaps for lifting a dinghy.

Thanks to all who weighed in on this thread. While I still don't have the hardware or dimensions of same, it has given me pause to think this through and some good viewpoints. gts1544 - George

If you really and truly think that you just have to have the dimensions, then let me know exactly what you want and I will measure mine and give them to you.
