Jensen Catamaran

We have recently purchased a Jensen Cat,

We know of one other based in QLD and are keen to catch up with anyone else who owns one.

Currently upgrading ours to go offshore so keen also to see pics of yours

Greg

Re: Jensen Catamaran

Yes
We are unable to get any info on the mast so will probably be refitting

Do you own a Jensen?

Re: Jensen Catamaran

Yes am in contact with Scuttle bug

Yes is rotating mast this is the problem, none of the "experts" can explain the how to make th mast work, is the mast safe.

Seems that the Whitestick was ahead of even this time, one rigger told me that it would not works and would break sailing even in the bay

Re: Jensen Catamaran

Interesting.

Fayze Too out of Esperence had their whitestick fail and they replaced it with a conventional aluminium stick.

A few others that I have been aboard have fixed the mast base to stop rotation.
Dreamweaver (40 ft ??)was one from memory

I attempted to lift a whitestick in the early days when I was at Andrews yard in Hendersen. I was supprised how floppy it was. Much may have changed from those early days.

I'm pretty sure a Schionning he built (SJ Marine) also ended up with a version of the white stick. That was also fixed shortly after launching to stop rotation.
