British Hunter Pilot 27 Mast

I'm new in this forum. 2 week ago I bought a British Hunter Pilot 27, built in 2005, build number 101. One of the last boats of this series, I guess. We live in Berlin, Germany, and probably we are the most south east owners of a Pilot 27 .... ;-)

But - now I have the challenge to construct a facility to lay down the mast easily. Yes, in Berlin we have to pass a lot of bridges, so it is necessary.

Does anybody have experiance with such a facility incl. mast boot? Perhaps I may get some pictures? That would be great.

Thanks a lot and best regards

Re: British Hunter Pilot 27 Mast

There is a guy in Berlin, who is happy with his "Jütvorrichtung" as an upgrade:
But there will be a problem due to the hight of the doghouse - so a new (higher) "Mastschuh" has to be installed to raise the pivotal point of the mast. Additionally the mast has to be reinforced at the new pivotal point. I have already seen such designs on dutch boats before.
I still fancy with a Hunter Pilot 27, but I still have to persuade my wife of it ;-)
Occasionally we are in Berlin to visit her sister and I would be very glad, if it is possible to show her such a boat in real terms - to visit her sister by boat could be persuading :-)
Will there be any chance?

Thanks in advance and
best regards from Alster to Spree
