Re: Rig and Sails

Toys,

It must nearly be time for you and the boat to be "summering" in the same place.

Re: Rig and Sails

I'm looking at purchasing a new Mahe and having it shipped to the Pacific Northwest. My dealer has suggested opting for a two piece mast to reduced shipping costs. Any comments on a one piece mast vs two piece? Is the Mahe mast still made by z-Spars?

Love this forum!

Re: Rig and Sails

Yes, the Mahe mast is made by Z Spars.

I never heard of any Mahe owner cutting the mast to ship their boat.
I would get a second opinion or call Z Spars phone number below.

Personally I would not do it.

Re: Rig and Sails

Not sure why you would do that. I doubt it has any effect on the price of shipping at all.

I agree with Mark. I wouldn't do it.

Re: Rig and Sails

What about some alternatives?
Don't know about your situation, but it Is a nice sail from La Rochelle to Panama and then up American west coast. Might take some time though.
Or: purchase the boat without sails and mast at a lower price; and then get yourself a nice carbon or rotating or whatever mast, and a nice set of sails (radial cut of a more advanced material than dacron. I'd take Hydranet). Build yourself a Mahé GT! Since another mast would have a different bend, probably using the standard main would lead to a bad shape. But you might need to discuss warranty things about hull integrity with FP.

Re: Rig and Sails

Not sure why the shipping would be more... I guess the mast is longer than the boat... but is it overlength?

Thanks for the replies everyone. We have decided to go with the one piece mast. FYI, FP offers the 2 piece mast for an extra $1600, but the shipping on it to the west coast is about $1600 less. Only advantage of the 2 piece mast is that its easier to ship and stays on the deck of the Mahe. A couple of riggers/mast manufacturers have advised me there is no practical difference between the two when installed, and many production boats are shipped with two piece masts. Never seen one.(and intend to keep it that way.) Thanks again for your reponses.

Square Head Main

For Square Head Main sail Mahes

Why not rig it like a “Doyle Anomaly Headboard

The Best Way to Raise and Lower a Square Top Mainsail

Using the Doyle Anomaly Headboard square top mainsails can now be hoisted without the need to manually attach the headboard to the carriage or re-install the gaff batten each time the sail is hoisted.
Hoisting the halyard pulls the headboard onto the carriage where a toggle locks the headboard into the carriage.
When the sail is lowered the headboard slides off the carriage with slack in the halyard allowing the sail to be flaked on the boom.

Re: Rig and Sails

i recently noticed that the part connecting the boom to the mast (am ashamed that I do not even know what it's called...) is worn out and I do not think that this part can be welded. on the picture you can see the hole having become very worn. has anyone else experienced a similar problem? am afraid to even ask FP for the price for the replacement part...
