San Juan 21

I am new to sailing and was wanting to know if a San Juan 21 should have a bow in the mast . I bought one a few days ago and the guy told me that the bow is part of the mast design on the 21 . Is this true . do mast have bows in them.

Welcome to sailnet. Do you mean a rake in the mast where it leans slightly backwards. Or an obvious bend that makes it twist to a weird angle. Or am I misinterpreting the question.

I think a curve or bend .. It starts at the bottom and curves for about 6 to 9 feet , It is straight and not twisted but looks like a bend toward the stern.

Well, the SJ21 is supposed to have rake, but not sure about actual bend.

Here's the manual for one, just in case you didn't already have it.

Hope that helps, and I hope someone comes along who can answer your question more specifically.

Oh, and welcome aboard!

Peace,

I used to own a San Juan. The mast on my boat was pretty straight although it did rake slightly backwards. Do you have any pics of the mast?
