Adding A Furling Main To A 310?
We are close to buying a 2001 310 (please don't hate me...for the 2 of
us the layout fits our needs!!)...it has ALL the features added as
extras we would ever need (auto helm, Air Conditioning, instrumentation,
lexan doors etc) but it does NOT have inmast main furling. I
realize this may be an incredibly redicously expensive stupid idea but would
there be a way to switch out the mast and sail out on that 2001 to a
roller furling one? I could include the cost in the purchase
price and have the dealer do the installation but I'd need to know
1)would a stock Catalina roller furling mast/sail for a current model
309 work on a 2001 310?
2) Would it need new shrouds?
3) would there be any market for the current (like new) 2001 mast
and fully battened main? (the sail literally is new...previous owner
used a different sail)
4) might there be anyone (like a 309 owner) that would prefer to not have a roller furling main and would want to swap me their roller furling
mast/sail for my full batten main and it's mast?
Thanks much in advance for any suggestions!!
