Skymaze Mast Lowering System

Hi All,

does anyone have a Skymaze lowering system on their boat. They originate from WA and are a dedicated engineering solution. I have one on my Cavalier 32 (Cavalier Lady) but don't know the details of operation.
Want to go under the bridges in Fremantle on the weekend so any advice, guidance, notes or video would be appreciated. HEEELP. Keith

Re: Skymaze Mast Lowering System

I have never heard the word Skymaze before, but if it is the hinged, keel stepped mast system, popular in Freo and Perth, I have been using it for well over 20yrs. I am not at all interested in going under bridges, but it gives a keel stepped mast which cannot leak and I would not own a yacht without it. As I have said a few times before, the only moisture I get down below is on my beer can. If it were discussed as a keel stepped mast system ( rather than a bridge negotiator ) which CANNOT leak, I reckon it would sweep the world as a mast mounting method.
There was a post relatively recently about the system and bridges, so you should get some replies pertinent to bridges.
All the best.
