C270 Mast Raising System

Click here for a labeled overview!
The heart of the system is a SS cable harness. It positions a one inch ring as the pivot point for two wire A frames inline with the mast pivot point. One "A" frame centers the mast while lowering and the other centers the whisker pole. The whisker pole is used fully collapsed with both headsail halyards attached to a one of a pair of boom bails. The 4:1 gear attaches to the second boom bail while the pole connects to the bolt holding the bails together.
