New deck stepped mast for Trintella 42 /USA

The new mast is ready to be shipped but I am delaying delivery(and final payment) as I am not happy with the rigger telling me that I need to move the mast 6" further forward to align the shrouds with the center of the mast (twin spreaders)Not only was the old mast in the same position for 20 odd years,it would place the mast support right up against the forward bulkhead and the plate on the top through the bulhead into the forward cabin?? Then I was advised to have swept back spreaders and finally everything is OK as is. There are 3 chainplates on both sides in the original position, now I am hesitant and would worry on passage that the stick might fall down,heaven forbid!
Any comments would be appreciated

We need more information. Why a new mast? Why farther forward if it is just a replacement or is it a rig re-design, by a qualified designer I hope?

Kind of difficult to believe that E. G. van de Stadt made an error in the rig design; after all these years I wonder who would be qualified to say that he was wrong. (?)

BTW, Nice looking yacht!

Bought the boat without a mast which the previous owner trashed.The rigger insisted that the cap shroud should be in line with one of the chainplates of which there are 3 either side hence he insited I move the chain plate or move the mast! Neither of which seems a good option. I apparently could have running backstays but thats something I do not want as I will be sailing solo.
This is a new Selden mast and although I got assurances from Selden that everything is OK, because of the previously raised issues wanted to get opinions from the great sailing fraternity. I would hate it falling overboard in the middle of the Atlantic!!

No, the mast lived for 20 odd years in the boat so was obviously correct, please see previous explanation as to my concerns.
Nice but very costly !!

Re: New deck stepped mast for Trintella 42 /USA

the cap shrouds or uppers should line up with the center of the mast more or less. on more modern rigs the caps are set way back and they use swept back spreader. the position of the chain plates and mast base on your boat will be almost inline and uses straight spreaders. the straightness or sweep of the spreaders does depend on the rake of the mast. you will have a back stay on that rig. seems like you might want to consult another rigger if does not understand how your boat was rigged.

check out this video as he turns around 360 degrees and you can see the spreaders and the alignment of the shrouds
that is good looking boat

Re: New deck stepped mast for Trintella 42 /USA

Seems to me, moving foward would actually give you more tension from shrouds and less on the back stay but what do I know. How did this "order" get this far before you found out the rigger wants to move it fwd?
