Look me up as I have a 33 Herreshoff cat ketch
with carbon fiber masts.
The removal of the masts from the boat is easy. On my boat, each mast has two stainless steel
rods that secure the mast to the keel
step. The mast wedge on my boat is the spartite.
Disconnect wires, remove pins, and lift
Regarding the trucking of the masts: possible to secure masts on deck
of boat, over hang on stern and bow, base of mast at stern. Check length and clearance of truck or trailer doing the transport.
