New mast invention
Mast and working prototype (patent#6805065) now for sale. This new technology is brand new and this forum is the first to get a chance at it. This will change racing and sailing as we know it. The easiest sailing imaginable. Manufacturing costs will be greatly reduced. Sailing safety will be increased.

I have witnessed this new mast on a vessel at Loon Lake, Washington, where it was invented and tested. I think it is the best.

This will be made public in 30 days.

Want more information?

Ah.... the better mousetrap....

This ought to be interesting. Notice that there are NO details about the rig...

Wonder if they can give us some specifics?

I wonder if they are paying Sailnet for the free advertising space? You gotta love these outfits that spam the boards here.

Certainly has add-like qualities doesn''t it.

This link (copy & paste all of it in your address bar) will take you to the patent. Unfortunately the drawings are not available. ;d=ptxt&s1=6805065.WKU.&OS=PN/6805065&RS=PN/6805065

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?
