    I have never really needed to demount the boat very often. The last time we did it we had two guys on each end of the Ama and one guy holding the beam steady when it slotted in or out of the main hull. The ama and beams weigh 200kg. With a few systems you could do it manually with a couple of people in not much time at all. This time I did it on my own using a crane. The crane pulled the mast off and supported the amas whilst they were de socketed. The crane was on site for an hour and a half. Pretty quick really. Like anything the more you do it the better you get. Once the crane put the mast on the ground - it took about 20 minutes to un-pin the single diamond rod and take the single spreaders off. The mast is two piece and joins at the spreader junction. A beautiful system by Marstrom. Then two guys easily carry the mast around and its no longer than the boat which is great for travelling.

    Hi Trevor - Photos attached (hopefully). There are hatch covers that go over the 2 x sections in the front V - berth. Under the aft hatch there is a spot custom made for a porta loo toilet. (we dont use it / carry one). There is also a brand new (never used) upholstered foam mattress that fits in the V-berth. This boat has a double ring frame (as can be seen in the photo) and a carbon mast compression post. Pretty much all other Tri's have the CB case running through this section which does not do much for open plan living.

    Fellas - in the next two weeks I will be de-mounting the boat and packing it up on the trailer. Will tow it to the shed for use when I have a bit more spare time later if not sold.

    Fellas - the boat is socketed. Its on its dual axle road trailer in one of the photos and has the ability to be demounted / towed. The centre hull is 8mt and amas 9.2mt. Mast cants electrically 15 degrees. Operated by 2 x foot switches on the cockpit floor. Stb cabin top winch is 2 speed electric and traveller is electric. Both controlled by wireless remotes the crew carry. Anyone half serious I can email high res photos and a full spec breakdown. Cheers Matt
