    Several suggestions and efforts of various people trying to be helpful were also rejected of ignored (like I used to be ? :D:D)
    I am reminded of that fellow a few weeks ago in the slab-sided aluminium "try" in the "...do a lap" thread:D:D:D

    Masai,
    To really highjack... What can you tell me about one of your countryman's designs...Rob Denney of Harry proa.. I need a new mast and I saw his free standing design and video. He wants a total of $2,000AU for plans and engineering. Seems expensive. I can buy and have rigged a 43' used mast for less than that.

    The1 use this, but Kaptin-Jer needs to read/use it first:D:D

    Kaptin-Jer,
    Read those posts with minimal interest (not keen on Harry proa or that family) but he seemed to do a fairly thorough job - was also published in Australia's multihull world www.multihull.com.au ... If you have the skills in "carbon & glass", or local builders I would be inclined to go with locals - you can visit and get a feel of how good they are by looking...

    Thanks,
    Mine is a mono hull that would take a lot of engineering below decks to make a free standing mast work. Besides I guess I'm old school, but my mast broke with 2 sets of spreaders. What keeps a free standing spar from breaking?

    Better design, - nothing fixed to the mast on the way up - making weak spots. I am not an engineer, just using logic... The strength of a tube/cylinder is weakened by holes, attachments, inconsistencies in thickness, mid length loads and so on ....

    I am looking at the "hitch-Hiker" rig developed by John Hitch for his current "X-IT" and earlier boats. . . No main... I am disorganised but have posted on this somewhere - a search for "X-IT" and "John Hitch" may reward you on that... I do not really like spreaders because of the tensions they can impise on an otherwise good "sky-hook" - and NO main reduces that lateral load...

    With luck a rigger or some other expert will howl this idea down or add their own expert views... for your edification and interest:D:D

    This could be interesting. I do know of a few really good riggers in my area. I have a gut feeling that this type of rig will be pretty expensive, and I would have to build the spar myself. But it is worth following up on.

    Engineering and no single points of failure. I'd give you betters odds of keeping a free standing rig in a roll over than a traditional rig. Yachties are stuck in the mud on this one... needless to say I like the idea.


    Topic ? What topic.... oh ! Seacarts, they go in containers and, errr well they just go period. Seacart 30

    Thanks Heinz,
    Not really my knowledge, Is seacart 30 Aussy? Must have been a quiet wind day...:D what is wrong with our southern designs???

    Kaptin -Jer & the1 - sorry no points for the moment Jeff has imposed restraint and therefore I am not allowed? to laugh so much at your antics (not antiques - understand?)

    Heinz you got a bonus for helping -mas- much appreciated... The thread starter seems to have gone quiet???????

    Seacarts are Sveeeedish..... I think? Carbon fibre one design thingies that are cooked in an oven.

    http://www.oceanlakemarine.com/

    They fly with terrifying ease, I think toward 20 knots will do it... they also go A over T, mainly cause of the loonies that sail them. Fun in the bay with a captial F... not for visiting twopical is-lands though. Who U calling antiques ?

    I need convincing about this mainless idea M, been reading... still confused, must contemplate and get in touch with my "inner sailor", seek advice from the gawds, burn incensed and all that.

    :D
