Fittings on carbon mast

I don't have one but I'm curious as to how fittings are attached to a carbon mast.
Many thanks

Re: Fittings on carbon mast

Depends on the fitting. For some, we have a collar fabricated. Something like a radar mount can be fabbed and bonded. I've watched a mast come down on a SC 52 because of improperly mounted hardware. Best to consult with the spar manufacturer.

I have seen a carbon mast where the fittings were part of the carbon build. Very neat.
