I have the same mast but for a 36' boat. I also looked at converting it to a full roach/batten mainsail. It can be done. With the Harken battcar system the complete system priced out over $3700. The mainsail and lazy jack was going cost another $4-5 grand. Since I haven't won the lottery yet it is beyond my means. If you do it, you will have to take out the furling rod inside the mast. It means dropping the mast because you have to take the mast head off. More Money! If you don't take it out it will rattle around and the noise will drive you crazy.

On a similar topic, anyone know if it's a simple job to remove a retrofit in mast system from a 34 foot yacht? looking at buying a boat that has mainsail furling retrofitted onto the original mast but would prefer a lazyjack system for blue water cruising. Would the original mast still be workable with the retrofit stuff removed?
