Sc20 Telescoping trailer

Post by WindyB »

Anyone had experience with Bill Robert's designed telescoping trailer re. Using it to raise mast as intended ?

I'm familiar with the Trailex version which I believe is probably based on the the one you have.

What specific questions do you have?

I made a similar rig for my SC15. What questions do you have?
I can only view the first picture.

. Want to know the correct way of raising mast using the trailer as intended by Bill Roberts.
There is a hole just below mast yoke where a fitting may have been where main sheet could attach to facilitate raising mast. But not sure.
When I sell the trailer with the 20 I want to be able to explain to new owner.

I have an ARC gin pole but usually raise by hand. In original manual Bill R describes raising mast with this very trailer but a bit vague.

I've had 3 ... 20s since 81 and just picked up an 80 hull #3 🤓

Can you post the manual? That looks like a rope winch on the mast support. Could the fitting below the mast yoke be for a snatch block to turn the rope from the winch towards the head stay or masthead?
I hoisted a mast length bridal to my masthead with the main halyard and attached it to my recovery winch strap to haul my mast up.
