Is this information available for the whole class? i.e. can we put it here?

Hi,

I will buy a new mast, but I have problem with choice (Proctor and SS M2 or M7). Crew weight is 164 KG +/-2KG (80Kg helmsman & 84Kg crew). I need your advise.

Regards from Poland

For your weight, a Selden (Proctor) Epsilon or SS M2, although you might find them too stiff

Cheers

Super Spars would either be an M2 or M7 the latter being more flexible but often fitted with a lower sleeve. N7 thinner at top, but may need to put beside someone elses to check. Some heavy weights used to sleeve the M2 as well. You can check the lower part of the mast for rivets somewhere just above deck level although some were just held with adhesive.

If you have a mast ram or similar you can hold or create bend in either, difference mainly should be in the top end, when the M7 flicks off more readily in gusts making it easier to control for lighter weights in heavy weather.

Who had 2135 before you? I might be able to tell you a bit more from that.

Best Regards

It might be an M3 (forerunner to M7), Trigger (previous owner) use to have a lightish crew.

M2 is a bit of a scaffold pole so would not have been sleeved

From the Superspar website the dimensions of the 3 mast are as follows:

M2 72mm x 57mm

M3 72mm x 57mm

M7 69mm x 57mm

You should at least be able to find it if it is an M7 or M2/M3

cheers i will try and measure it.

Trigger must have had a light crew coz the spreaders were 25 mm longer than the guide sugests and swept back more aswell. next stop, check the rake!
