Re: Removing a deck stepped mast on a Catalina 30

If you are at LHM it might be worth a walk to the far west end of the parking lot to the yard full of construction equipment and cranes.

I can't remember the name, but that company builds bridges. Had a buddy who slipped them some dough to pull his mast earlier this year while he was in the water.

I can't read the name of the company in street view on my phone but will figure it out and post it later. Good luck.

Prolly ok on the hard, not sure I would want to keep my boat in their marina after watching them rebuild from Sandy.

It's a perfect location, twenty minutes from my work in midtown. I get a LOT of work done on her during the week. Yes Nyack yacht club offers this service for free. I am in Jersey City and I like it that way.

Lets stick to references for people with equipment in the NY metro area.
It occurred to me that instead of offering advice I could offer assistance in the form of an extra set of hands. If you want to give the 2 x 6 thing a try, I'll help you out. I work in JC so no big deal. PM me if interested.

Thanks, I'd consider a home brew A frame if the boat was in the water. So crane it is. I need to make calls next week to have a more few prices.

Always happy to lend a hand. BTW, asked my friend about the construction yard down the way. Their crane is on a barge in the canal, so won't do you any good. Good luck!

Re: Removing a deck stepped mast on a Catalina 30

Well, I did it, and I documented the experience here. Some said it was trivial, and others said it was a complicated procedure. All in all I feel good about my decisions about who to use and how to go about it.

Great that you documented that for all to see! Too bad that boatyard doesnt have a crane. As you said it's often less than 1/2 hour work for the crane. Some places will do $150 round trip.
So do you have to pay again to get the mast back up when you are ready? Wow... that's adding up.

Wow, $150 -- that would cover a good meal for two in the NYC area.

I shouldn't need the crane to get the mast back on. The marina can use the Travelift when I splash her.
