Well this was not on a cat but it may give you some measure of the cost.
Our mast was damaged while it was on a rack in storage
last year. It was replaced by our insurance
company. The boom was fine and not replaced.
It is a Selden mast with inmast furling
. The new mast came with new standing rigging. It's a B&R rig with discontinuous rigging so quite expensive with all the swagged fittings as well as the double diagonals. Also all new wiring
(lights and vhf), new halyards and topping lift
. As well as new in-mast furler with mast mounted winch
. It is a deck
stepped mast with two spreaders, airdraft is 55 ft.
The work was performed by the Hinckley Yard in Florida
. The total cost was about $18K US. I think the materials were about $14K the rest labour. It included reinstall of the radar
. It was almost a whole day to dress the mast. And it was about half a day to lift
the boat, use a crane to set up the mast on the vessel and cutting the stays putting on the sta-loks etc. the rest of the day was for the boom, the kicker
and so on.
The labour was a bit higher because the new mast had a larger shoe and required a larger plate on the compression
post. Our mast sits directly on the compression
post. The post passes through the deck
to sit on the keel
. Hinckley shops had to pull the compression post out, fab a new plate, weld and polish and reinstall.
The work was excellent. Steve Pettengill was the rigger and he did a fantastic job.
