Helms Mast help

I recently was given a 27 helms. The mast is down and the fiberglass was repaired. I am unsure how this is supposed to go back together. Does anyone have any ideas or pictures or advice they can give. Please, I want this old girl to ride the wind once more.

Re: Helms Mast help

Sorry I don't have pics of mast truck or spreaders but, in the words of your old text books, that should be " intuitively obvious"

Re: Helms Mast help

Not entirely sure what you mean. Are you unsure of how to mount the mast? Or how to fasten the rigging? or both? Please elaborate.

Re: Helms Mast help

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I posted some pix of my mast work that includes my mast stepping a-frame. I use the stanchion base on my boat and merely loosen the screw securing the stanchion and let it lie on the deck. It can't roll overboard (as much as it wants to like everything else) because it's still got the lifeline strung thru.
I don't know if yours has an alum foot on the mast extrusion that "hinges" on the shoe attached to deck...like mine.
Hope this helps.
