Episode 27 Used Sailboats for Sale Deck Stepped Mast or Keel Stepped Mast which is better

The thing about that is people are religious about that issue and there really is no one right answer the argument for keel stepped masts go back in history to the idea that if you had a mast that was stepped on the keel especially with wooden boats but with any boats it adds one extra panel to the mast, one extra structural section to the mast and therefore allow the mast to be stronger, stiffer, and smaller in size. When we went to the CCA Racing Rule the emphasis changed on how rigs were designed because the rule pushed us to masthead rigs.

And masthead rigs are pretty easy to step on deck. Frankly the structure between the deck and the bottom of the boat between the deck and the keel became something that was a simple structural compression post and therefore for boat builders that gave them quite a few advantages. People at that time, recreational sailors, were pulling their boats out of the water for the winter made it easy to take the mast off the boat so maintenance got to be less and these masts were so stiff when they went t aluminum masts compared to the.

Wooden masts that preceeded them that extra panel wasnt necessary but as we learned about sail shape and sail design and rig design those stiff masts were just not a great thing the risk with the the deck stepped mast was that if you lost the mast it was over the side and there was no way to recover it out in the ocean there was a feeling that all you could do was cut the rig away and hope that it didnt put a hole in the boat before you.

Got it loose so for cruising boats there was a sense that you had to have a keel stepped mast. The reality with that though was that keel stepped masts take water down below the decks are always the keel is always there always water in the bilge there often water across the deck if you turn around youll see there water that came down the mast during the storm and ran across the deck and into the bilge so its a nuisance to have a keel stepped mast if you dont need one now in my mind the best solution is actually a deck.

Stepped mast that has a moment a structural connection at the deck so that the load gets transferred through the deck to a structural post thats in bending you gain the extra panel you gain the ability that the mast is still attached to the deck because the other issue with a keel stepped mast is if you lose the mast theres this piece of mast thats beating you to death its folded over and the waves are pushing it against the boat and you end up having to try to cut this tree trunk down to keep from sinking your boat if its really.
