weight of C26 mast

Postby monty » Sat Aug 25, 2012 5:58 pm

Anybody know why our masts are so doggone heavy? I have always raised my masts single handed and still do with the Chrysler, but with a gin pole, bridle, block and tackle, etc.

My Hobie18 had a taller mast and carried more sail and the Mac26 carried a sail area similar to the C26 and had a very light mast that never caused me concern, so why so heavy on the C26?

I was just moving an old Hobie16 mast out behind the garage and it got me thinking - would it work on the C26?

Any thoughts?
