Please read the post in my signature for the sake of everyone on this forum.
SD, I know, you're the designated barking dog at the gates of this forum who can always be counted on to jump on someone who dares to reply to an ancient thread or fails to give key information that would help answer a question. But you make you point fine with your subtle use of caps, boldface, and flashy colors--no need to call folks idiots on top of that. That's just rude.

What were you thinking?

Do you realize how much time you have taken that I could have been spending in the A$$ full of Crap thread? Or one of the many worthy Ignore threads? You obviously don't realize how valuable our time is.
Come on Steve, don't let the fact that ther couldn't be a main 48x 48x 24 (right angle, Pythagorean theorem) stop you from recommending that you sell him the perfect spars (with you as the installer)

Hey Dan
If it was me I think I would go ahead and get a Naval architect to figue out what you need, then get a hold of a good rigger to put it together for you. I'm guessing you have all ready tryed to fine the PO of the boat to find out or you would't be asking. Best of luck on it all.

Thanks for all the help. I am just getting into sailing.

A picture of the boat is here:
... i need 10 posts to post a link, you'll have to click on my username and go to my home page in the contact section ...

It was built, sold bare hull, used as a liveaboard and never registered. There's no id plates or anything. I am trying to get this registered as a home-built now, then fix up a few things. But some day I will sail this boat!

The people I bought this from don't remember the builder (over 30 years ago. i have one lead to follow), but remember it was meant to have a Macroni (Bermuda) Rig. I would need a 65 foot mast or so. That will be fun. Anyways, I don't dare ask if I have the right sails. I'll dig around the net a bit, but might come back for more dumb questions There were about 20 sailing books on the boat, more reading over the winter.

It might be worth talking to a naval architect or marine engineer, since they'll be able to tell you how the boat would be best rigged.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Capn. Dan,
You are going to have to figure out what design your boat is. Every ferro cement boat built, whether professional or amateur was built from a set of plans. You really need to get yourself a copy of those plans. \

I have a used mast from a rather large catamaran, a Privilege 46' I believe.
If you get to where you can provide some specs, I don't think you will have a hard time finding spars.

If you budget allows, you might even check out some of the spar companies. I know that Charlston Spar once in a while will have a spar with a scratch or dent that they can't sell as new and you may get a great deal.
