Hi Olsen
I tried to look at the boat your buying but the site comes up unobtainable.
However if it's a 36' boat then that Tabernackle sure looks a poor one from a build quality as there is no ties between the cheek plates and the bottom of the mast looks poorly connected to it and only with one bolt! I guess the mast on your new boat must be about 40' min.

My own Tabernackle on my CW 24' shown below is to my 30' mast manufactured out of Galvanised 3/8" plate and strengthened front and back as you can see, however even with a 30' mast it's best a crane job to lower it, so for a 36' yacht I do not see the point of why it was fitted.

As said why buy a future problem.
