| Approx weight of an RL24 aluminium mast|
|My mast seems exceptionally heavy-I have made some gadgets to help raise it however assembling the bits can get a bit tedious-perhaps an easier option is to have a lighter mast. |
I had a Hobie Getaway previously and one person could easily stand it-the Getaway mast was approx the same height
I am not thinking of anything exotic like carbon fibre-aluminium will do.
Does anyone have some mast weights-what would be considered the weight of a light mast for example. I have heard that the Hobie 18 mast is suitable for an RL24.
ps Perhaps I am just getting weaker with age.
|Re: Approx weight of an RL24 aluminium mast|
|I used some bathroom scales and weighed the mast-20 kg. The mast has aluminium spreaders and the rig has only a forestay and two side stays.|
Is this an average weight? Am I right in thinking it is a heavy mast?
