SPINDRIFT 13.3 detailed photos/plans/specs MAST
ospenser posted a topic in Main ForumHello - in coming up with a mast for this boat given to me, i thought i'd ask here if anyone has photos/plans/specs on the SPINDRIFT 13.3 sailboat - especially the mast details (step, stay/shroud attachment, main halyard hardware at top of mast etc) I can probably wing it with what i have - but the more info the better fair winds to all Mike
Thanks and WOW. sounds fairly feasible. Gotta say i wasn't looking forward to trying to fit someother mast to this boat. ini will look for the birdsmouth mast doc here. i have a powermatic 64 tablesaw, bandsaw, lotsa tools, and a fair amount of woodworking training/ amateur experience. So YOU (being a PRO of course) make it sound fairly easy, but i will dig in. That mast on the lightning was always a nice touch - dont see enough wood in boats these days. GREATLY appreciated!!!!! Mike

ospenser posted a topic in Main ForumCurrently in South Miami area - LOVE the site name!!! been sailing since i was 8, skippering lightnings to ravens to caravel 23' to Erickson 27' and even a Beneteau 41(?) between St. Lucia and Grenada - and the sporadic flings on Hobie cats and sunfish. I've been given a Spindrift 13 without a mast - but all the rigging. So likely i will have to either fit an exiting (hobie?) mast onto it, or order one custom - (not likely) or make my own - i am not without plenty of woodworking experience and tools/equipment - but NO experience in this area. So hello! and . . . Where should i post this issue? maintenance or woodworking or design? Thanks in Advance. Mike
