Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

I found a new potential Boat to buy, this one with the added challenge of transporting it.

Does anyone know anyone in Vancouver Island South that can help taking down a mast for transport and rigging it back at the marina?

The cost of this can determine if its worth pursuing the sale.

Re: Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

most of the boat yards can do that. Cost should be about $1500 for a 30ish footer to derig and set the boat and rig on a truck for transport. same at the other end of the trip.

Thanks Overbored, that sounds very overpriced. I need to find two guys with a crane truck or an A frame. The transport quote from water to water is a very small portion of that cost.

Re: Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

what size boat? I am sure there is a cheaper way but if you damage the mast that came with the boat the new mast will cost more then the boat to replace. not sure what you are trying to do but two guys with a crane truck sounds like an accident waiting to happen. most yards are not going to let two guys with a crane truck lift your mast in their yard

Is a 27' the mast weights about 80 pounds tops. Basically taking down a long pole. How hard could that be? I have moved whole cargos across continents for a portion of that. It doesn't make sense ))

Re: Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

that's a different story. so it is a trailer sailor. there are many on the forum that have lots of experience taking down a small mast. is it keel or deck stepped?

Thank you for sharing the video. It's an Aloha 27' with a deck stepped mast.

Re: Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

Re: Mast Riggers Vancouver Island

You could hire 2 or 3 guys for an hour and do it by hand. Why aren't you sailing the boat home?

I will, is on a lake. I need to take it to the coast. Just calculating the cost and hassle first to see if it's worth buying it.
