Looking for spare mast step for Maricat 4.3


Recommended Posts

Hello!

Due to an unfortunate mishap today my maricat is sad because she is lacking her mast step. And I'm devastated because I'm stranded ashore with her. I believe one of the rivets had worn out and snapped in a ~ 20 knot gust. The step had sunk long before I even realized what happened. You really can't trust even if the rivets looked good on the outside.

Anyway I live in Northern Europe so I guess my best bet is to find a spare part online and have it shipped here. Has anyone had any success fitting a Hobie 14 step on a Maricat as those seem to be abundant even in this part of the world? The mast base would also need to be changed in this case, does a Hobie's base fit into a Maricat mast?

You can also contact me direclty via email matti.rahnasto@gmail.com.

Hello there Matt from Finland.

We have seen your post and photos on the Maricat website.

Darcy1945 is your man for good second hand parts.

I’m sure he will respond shortly.

He will mail parts out but don’t think he has sent them that far before.....

New parts are also available from Maricat NSW (Mick Colecliffe “Humungus”

Thanks for the tips!

The chapter before these events in the story of my catamaran was splendid. I recall my last update was about getting her a new main sail - and what a main sail it is! Compared to the old and shapeless multicolored sail, this really "gave a new life" to the boat 😁  And since the "race-illegal" square top moves the center of effort just a tiny bit upwards, you really can fly the hull and seek the thrill at even lower wind speeds 😍 I'm looking forward into having her rigged for some more maricat fun.
