32' GB Mast and Boom

My dock neighbor has removed the mast and boom from his 32' and has asked me to send them to a new home. Includes the bronze mast hinge, boom bracket and mast mounting foot. Please send me your offer and I will pass it on to him. The items are in Bellingham, WA.

If I was him I'd store it for resale.

He installed a hardtop over his cockpit and had a fancy aluminum on custom made for his needs. No looking back now.

It would be interesting to see how the roll characteristics change without the mast and boom, unless the new one is of similar weight and moment arm.

I've heard if you take down the mast, it rocks faster and easier...

I have never heard that. Which is not to say that it is not true, of course. But doesn't really seem logical that removing the toothpick would make it roll more. Seems as if it would roll less. I could well be wrong though. We have a lot of experts on the forum, so perhaps someone will explain the physics to me. :-)

it's called angular momentum, i think.

the distance from the center makes it slow down the frequency of rocking, even though the mass of the mast isn't large, it's length is and rocking from one side to another means having to stop the sideways motion of the mast and reverse it in the opposite direction.

Is that why we rock more than some others?

What I heard, is the mast is useful in when the sea is coming at the boat from the stern. The wind leans the boat over with the sail, and tends to hold it there keeping it from rolling with the waves.

Probably either a stern anchor, or else anchored both front and back. I've always liked to swing with the the wind and tide, but different strokes for different folks. :-)
