Carbon rig to M40-007 "Loon-A-Sea"
Owner of M40-007 has chosen Offshore Spars Carbon rig and boom to his Maestro 40. This is first M40 to get a carbon rig and we are looking forward to get first sail test with carbon rig. Comparing to standard aluminium rig carbog rig is more lighter and it means even better sailing performance.
Offshore spars carbon fiber masts are laid up over male molds or mandrels using unidirectional, pre-preg carbon fiber and autoclave cured. The aluminum mandrels are then extracted leaving a homogeneous, seamless tube. This process results in a light weight, strong product in comparison to other carbon mast construction methods.
