Re: 1990s boom furling mains

I downsized that overly large image for you...

Looks like an in-boom furler.. maybe the trim stripes will confirm the maker for you.

One other comment.. that cockpit arrangement (maximizing aft cabin volume) provides zero back rest support for anyone seated in the cockpit.. This can be problematic for cruising, and for some peoples' 'feeling of security' on deck. Our boat is similar, but not quite as extreme, but you still feel more like you're 'on' the boat instead of 'in' it.

In this case you don't even have a cabin back to lean against, you'd definitely need a set of those folding, self supporting seats!

Looks in pretty good shape, though..

Still hard to be sure w/ the sail cover on. The mast track, stops and rigid vang are what I have. The outboard boomend turning block for the furling line isn't identical to mine but similar.

Yep, sure does look like in boom and not as some idiot, cough splutter, first surmised around boom.

Re: 1990s boom furling mains

That boat has been for sale for a LOOOONG time... I've always been intrigued by the Maestro 35, and I first had a look at her - just from the dock - when I was out in Santa Barbara for my nephew's college graduation, which was about 6 years ago...

Finally got to go aboard one 2 winters ago down in Marathon (the one on Yachtworld, located up on Lake Ontario)... Sweet boat, but I found it VERY tight below (I'm 6' 5", so I notice that sort of thing pretty quickly :-)), seemed a classic example of just trying to squeeze too much accommodation into too small a package... Storage space - especially for deck gear and other stuff for extended cruising, appeared to be pretty minimal, which is typical on boats under 40' or so with an aft stateroom...

But, depending on your intended use for the boat, she could still be a great choice, obviously a high-quality build, and I would guess a very sweet-sailing boat...

Good luck...

The cockpit isn't quite all that, here's a better pic...





Still, not the sort of cockpit you can really stretch out in, which would be a major downside, for me... Better than the one I saw in Florida, however, which featured the classic "Widow Maker" high bridgedeck, which I feel is an absolutely terrible idea on a 35-footer, the 'walk-thru- arrangement on the first boat is far superior, and so much safer...

Re: 1990s boom furling mains

Finally got the info on the boom furling...

John Mast's Hi-Lo

The John Mast (JM) Hi-Low Reefer is imported from Denmark by Lars Pedersen of Bente Trading Company, Mercer Island, WA. Pedersen has long been a boom-furling zealot; he worked with the Danish mastmaker to develop the system. Over 1,500 boom-furlers have been sold in Europe since 1990.

Opinions?
