Description: **** LAST ONE SOLD********
Steel Gin Pole & Aluminum Mast Stand to support & raise your mast Solo. This system will allow you to raise & lower your mast BY YOURSELF when you don't have help. Operation takes approximately 15 minutes.

No one has to stand on the tramp to push the mast up or ease it back down.

Indispensible for trailer sailors or when traveling to regattas or on vacation!

It's Portable! If you have multiple boats, as I do, you can use this system on all of them.

Mast Stand keeps the mast from resting on the trampoline possibly damaging the tramp or diamond wires on the mast.

'Fifth generation'design used successfully for 5 years on several different boats. It Works!

(sorry but lowering the mast was truncated by Flickr)

Cats up to 20' long
Aluminum masts up to 30ft
Carbon Fiber masts up to 32ft
Designed & used on Cats with 'Round' or 'D' shaped front crossbeams

1) 1 portable Gin Pole that can be used on any boat having the necessary loops on the crossbeam.

2) 1 adjustable mast stand to support the mast while rigging the Gin Pole.

3) 2 loops plus 2 eyes for the crossbeam

4) 1 Pulley to mount onto your trailer tongue (bolt/nuts not included)

5) 1 Stainless Steel carabiner

6) Complete instructions with photos showing how to use the system.

1) Requires the permanent mounting of 2 small loops on the front of your front crossbeam.

2) Requires the permanent mounting of 2 small 'eyes' at the end of your front crossbeam (unless you have some there already.)

3) You must already have 1 set of trapeze wires attached to your mast.

4) You must have a winch (in good condition) with steel cable mounted on your trailer.

1) 1 bolt thru trailer tongue with 2 nuts

2) 8 - 3/16"x 1/2"long Stainless Steel rivets or screws for mounting the loops

So stable that you can lock the winch with the mast half-way up and walk away. (see photo)

I have been designing and testing various materials and methods for 10 years. The system is light but strong. This is my 'fifth generation' design which I have used successfully for 5 years on several different boats. It Works!

I have ONE complete System Still Available.

Could you send me a photo of your mast base and the ball it rests on? Or if not a ball, then what it looks like on the front crossbeam? j
