Re: How Do You Move a Mast Over the Road

Here is how I transported my (wood) 40' main and slightly smaller mizzen. There are two turntables, one on the trailer support and one on the lumber rack padded with carpet. The masts were solidly strapped to the trailer support and loosely strapped down to the lumber rack. this allowed for some fore and aft movement as the vehicle made corners. The trailer is 12'.

In the 200 mile move we passed several highway cops and didn't get a second look from them.



It doesn't look like the embedding is going to work. Look at photo 135 in the web album below.
