Re: C&C110 mast track separated from carbon

I have no idea what the materials were. I know the track can still be sourced through C&C and shipped in a large roll.

Thanks for the information. I just wanted to have a plan since the boat is 9 years old.

Did they mention the soure for the track material? Hall? HArken?

Re: C&C110 mast track separated from carbon

I believe the 99 mast was similar as the masts were made by Novis Composites. This company has changed hands several times over the past decade. I never had much luck with CC/T. We had a warrantee issue and had the repair done at the Ohio facility and the workmanship was bad. They have sold and moved since. I used a local marine service called Wiggers Custom Yachts Ltd. located at Port Darlington, Ontario, Canada. They have a reputation for high quality work...at a high price They removed the strip, cleaned, reapplied bonder, installed, fared, and painted the mast. I've paid for it and have not seen the results yet. I trust them that much

Thanks for sharing. I wonder if it is the same as the CC 99 mast track?
Could you tell me where you went to have them fix it?
Did CC/Tartan help you find the pieces?
Does CC/T still make the mast?
Thanks

Re: C&C110 mast track separated from carbon

It was just repaired under insurance. C&C has been sold a couple times lately and the warrantee is null and void from what I understand. Our insurance company was going to try and recover some money from them, but goiod luck with that.
Our mast was just repaired. I haven't seen it yet, but we had the entire strip removed, rebidded, and mast resprayed. Should look good and last for my lifetime

We have a couple estimates for the repair. One reputable company in the area wants to repair just the area that separated and another wants to replace the entire length.

I don't trust the track and think removing the entire length would be the best solution.

Has this happened to anyone else and how was it repaired.

Same thing happened to a 110 we raced at key west.it was a well known production flaw. They replaced the track under warrantee. Meanwhile we had to lash the main to the mast and climb above the spreaders to tie and untie
