Mast lifting rig

Bad things do happen .I managed to lose my mainsail halliard up the mast on my bi-plane catamaran.Unfortunately the masts are un-stayed and free-standing.The challenge was that the mast would have to be lifted vertically , then rotated to access the mast tip .After debating using a very long tripod , I instead constructed a lifting rig to do the job.Two 6 foot pine studs were set upright at 8 inch spacing and braced to horizontal arms around 5 feet long. A 3:1 trailer winch was then set below a…See More

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless

Stella.

Himemoa beams :

Hi Graham

I made the beams 3400mm wide, a little wider than standard i believe ..

The Ali tubes were 150mm diameter and 5mm thick wall , a bit of an overkill but would never fail 

Had a local Ali boat building firm weld them up for me ..

i  also used50mm tybe for bow and stern to hang nets off and a sort of dolphin catcher on bow tube ..

I now have another project a tiki 21 and those wooden beams I would say are approx same weight. or Ali  a little lighter..
