    Uncle Albert,

    I have two individual Harken Hoister systems that I don't need anymore. I used them for storing my catamaran hulls and they worked really well for that. The hulls were 20 feet long...

    Watermark,

    I found those links a while back, and they are good, but not complete. For instance, I found out that the 44 sq foot Bermudan rig uses a 50 mm mast tube at least at the lower end.
