Mast lifting torque

Recommended Posts

I just bought a Hobie 18.. Haven't used vessel yet love this idea I saw on YouTube.. 

The mast raises from pivot forward hence the forestay tensions the lift.  On YouTube a brilliant guy placed a tube perpendicular to mast at mast pivot and fed the lift via the radius of tube thus torquing the lift from lay.

 

I intend to build a righting pole which cups the mast pivot and slots a feed line on other end.. As mast nears vertical,  the pole can drop out having done job yet during job pressure will hold system together. 

Much like a torque pole leading tension of Guy pole clew. 

(Still an idiot but an idiot with a surf boat.  Lol)
