Dan Juan 23 mast questions


Recommended Posts

A local fellow has a mastless San Juan 23

i have a collection of various spars.

we would like to choose the most appropriate mast.

or decide we don’t have one. 
 

Sailboat data gives me a pretty good idea of what Kirby had Clarke use but I would love to know EXACTLY what came on the 23.

 

I have J-24 masts and a San Juan 24 mast.
 

The J24 mast is hull stepped and light weight . The SJ 23 weighs 400 lbs less than a J-24 

the SJ -24 mast is a beast. The SJ24 has nearly double the ballast of a SJ23 and I am concerned about using a mast that is obviously way heavier than correct 

 

anyway... for all I know, the J-24 mast could be the exact same extrusion as a San Juan  23. 
 

Dors anybody here have access to look at a San Juan 23??

FWIW my Nelson Marek 1/2 Tonner - about 6200 Lbs - uses a SJ 24 extrusion.

It was raced hard for years and still has the original spar.

Gouv,

i love you brother. Most of your repair advice is top notch, but would it kill you to proof read before you hit submit?  

This site seems to have a problem with the sequencing of posts.

this post had at least four corrections made

Maybe you should hire a nice girl to type your SA posts. ;)

I took a look at a SJ23 at the marina here.  Extrusion is about 4.75" x 3.5" teardrop shape.  Looks like the same one as used on the SJ7.7 as far as I could tell.
