New mast invention

Hmmm...everything old is new again?

I have a book called "peculiar Yachting Inventions" or something similar that has a set-up just like this patented in 1923 (I would guess that materials are vastly different).

Hmmm...unstayed, pivoting, hinging mast relying on wear collars in the middle of the Atlantic...what could possibly go wrong?
