    GENTLEMEN , LADIES , FIRST POST .PLEASE BEAR WITH ME..
    I HAVE AN IDEA CAN'T FIND ANY PRYOR ENTRIES, DATA, OR INFO RELEVANT.. SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CRITIQUE..
    STAYED , MASTHEAD , 6 IN CARBON TUBE , WITH A REMOVABLE MASTHEAD PLATE/CRANE, TO HOLD THREE HALYARDS, SPINN, REACHER, AND JIB.
    FORESTAY ,TWO CAPSHROUDS, AND TWO RUNNING BACKSTAYS...VHF ANTENAE,TRI COLOR,WIND INTRUMENT...
    MAST STEP, LARGE FLANGE , WITH INTERIOR TURNING BLOCKS FOR ABOVE HALYARDS.
    THE TUBE WILL BE 50 FT, AND A 47 FT , 3 TO 1 , PLYWOOD WING MAST ,7 IN X 21IN .WILL ROTATE AROUND TUBE AXIS... ..THE WINGMAST WOULD HAVE ONE MAIN HALYARD AND ONE TOPPING LIFT, WITH EXITS AT 5 FT AND CLUTCHES...
    THINKING OF USING 3 TO 5 BEARING SURFACES, ON BOTH TUBE AND PLYWOOD WING MAST .
    QUESTIONS : WILL CARBON BE A GOOD BEARING SURFACE .?
    Could I simply make a carbon friction BEARING, inner and outer. X5 , MAST head, base , boom point, and two more along axis.??? Lubrication?
    Will a 7 inch TUBE be strong enough, ?????
    Would I need spreaders on wing section.???
    My opinion being an easily rotated , efficient wing section , WITH very little if at all compression loads , very light BUILT and very light OVERALL weight ...
    Your thoughts ,will be apreciated...thank you. ..joe
