If you have the old one, you can often get a machine shop to make a new one... based on the old one as a pattern.

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.

Try Dwyer Mast Co. I can't remember the size on the SC22 but they may have it.

I once had one made for a smaller boat from 2 peices of SS channel drilled and pinned.

Similar Problem-Mast Stepping

I have a similar mast issue. My dad and I always have a heck of a time stepping the mast on out Southcoast 22.

My sailing club has three Flying Scots and I recently helped unstep the mast. The former commodore I was helping called the Mast Hinge Pin Assembly a "kicker" for lack of a better term, and I want one for my Southcoast.

Anyone know if the Flying Scot part offered online will fit a Southcoast? It's the only kit I can find that has that hinge pin kit. A mast base casting would be great too if it would fit in the tabernacle.

Any advice?
Thanks!
Betsy

Cool

Angelgal918,

I posted some pics of mast stepping system I use on my SC 22. (on Picasa) I have PM'd you the link. There are a few more items you need to have to make it work but they can all be built from 2 X 4's and simple, easy to find or fabricate parts.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Are you looking to be able to step and unstep by your self, or with 2 people?

Stepping the Mast

I'd like to one day rig a system whereby I can step and unstep by myself. I'm not a very strong person, but this gin-pole thing looks promising.

It is very easy to step the mast on the SC 22 with 2 people. Neither needs to be very strong. I have a good easy way to do that. Never had need to do it alone. Sorry.

Mast Stepping

I have a Oday 22 with a tabernacle consisting of two plates, one on deck and one on mast base, that mate with a pin.
I step the mast by myself. I use an adjustable mast crutch with a roller that mounts in the rudder gudgeons. Then pull the mast up by the forestay using the mainsheet tackle.
The youtube link shows an elaborate system in use on a Catalina 22. I particularly like the a-frame/ gooseneck idea.
The Dwyer unit looks like an excellent option for a replacement mast step/ tabernacle.
