Mast Collar

I'm going to be refitting my boat for single handling and need to run my lines aft from the mast, i know i will need a collar and the supports to attach the collar to the mast so i don't pull the deck up and distort or dammage it. where can i find a mast collar and supports? are they custom made?

Pretty much yes...I'm having one made right now.

A new boat may have an option for one from the factory but any older boat well need to either get one off a derelict boat or have one made by a custom shop.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the still have to spend money on the court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

The deck stay will have to be custom fitted as well, some go right to the mast step, others attach to the mast just far enough down from the overhead to make room for a turnbuckle so it has some adjustability. Of course all and any through deck connections must be properly backed up.

Another possibility might be to attach the turning blocks (or the collar) to the mast itself just above deck level, that would alleviate a lot of the lifting moment on the deck.

Any competent rigger would be able to accommodate you but I suspect this could end up costing you a bit...
