Rigging The standing rigging consists of two aluminum masts. Both masts are painted with two part poly- urethane paint. The main mast is a single extrusion, 8” x 11” x 3/16” aluminum oval tube. It has welded on mast steps  all the way to the top for easy of climbing. There  are two sets of spreaders, the lower ones hold the tops of the stabilizer poles. The fittings, wires and chain plates are 316 stainless steel with bronze and SS turnbuckles. The mast is deck stepped, and sits in a 316 SS deck pad. This is supported by an aluminum compression post inside the vessel, mounted on the keel. The aft stays are two wires running to a 4”x4” aluminum square tube spreader, which is designed to keep the wires out of  the walking areas alongside the pilothouse. There are a number of winches mounted on the main mast. Two wire winches with 5/16 SS cable are used for lifting dingies and such or the bosun’s chair, when there is need to go up the mast for service or inspection. Both for-stays are anchored to the bow roller and have furlers on them. The main boom is 21 ft long. There is a SS boom on the front side of the main mast, which is used with it’s electric winches, for lifting the large tender in and out of the water. The mizzen mast is also a single extrusion, 6”x8” 3/16 aluminum oval tube. It also has welded on mast step all the way to the top for climbing. The mizzen boom is 16ft long. The mizzen mast hold the radio antennas, WiFi antenna, flood lights, loud hailer, etc. The sails are all furled. Both masts, main and mizzen, have outside roller furling.
