Title: measures of the mast
Post by: Erik on November 02, 2020, 05:30:05 pm
Does any one know the dimensions of the mast. On a CSY 44 WO. I have a sheet that shows its supposed to be 11in x 7 inx .188 thick and 56.4 tall. I also seen comments that it was a Kenyon mast . I called Kenyon and they said thats way to big. Boat didn't come with the mast. But keel step plate on boat is 5.5in x 9.5in rectangle is that to small . I have a 60ft 5.5in x 9.5in mast that fits the keel step. would this work . any help is appreciated

Hi Erik,

You can download some info I have saved on our website--the link to it is in this thread:


One of the posts in there gives specifics about the Kenyon mast section part number, which may help you call Kenyon to see if the the mast you are looking at meets the original specs.

There are also some drawings, which may be of use, but in a quick look, I did not see actual dimensions of the spar--just placement of the fittings on the mast and boom.

The CSY Guide to Buying a Yacht (pdf file) also has a discussion from CSY talking about mast strength and type of metal, etc.

You can download that here: 

I hope this helps!

We are also looking for a circumference of our mast which is the original. She's a 1978 WO model.  We are trying to purchase a radar mount for our SITEX radar but it appears we need mast circumference.  I've scanned the previous thread and don't see that listed.  Thanks in advance!

Hi Sue Darrin
  I would greatly appreciate that. Mine is hull # 196. You can send to midevilaxe@yahoo.com . If you can . I am needing to to get as much info and pictures I can. I am doing a restoration The boat was stripped before I purchased it . So figuring where everything was placed and what was needed is a challenge. Especially since I am new to sailing . But a great challenge . Thanks again
