Lifeline Stanchion
« on: 29 July, 2009, 16:42:26 »
I am in the process of refurbishing my '73 Contest 33, hull #85.  Does anyone know the manufacturer, make and/or model of the lifeline stanchions used on the Contest 33.  Also, are there any Contest owners out there in Connecticut or elswhere in the Northeast?  Anyone with any experience lowering the tabernacle mast?

Hi Joe, welcome to this forum. AFAIK the original stansions were manufatured by Goiot but I don't think they have the original model anymore.  About the mast: I've tried it once with a Contest 30, 1970 model, ik that was quite a job. After that experience I've never tried it with the mast on my current 1971 Contest 33. Just to heavy for me, I prefer a crane.  

The CYOC has some members in the US, one in New York and one near Boston... kinda northeast..  ;)

I own a contest 36s located in Connecticut. There are at least 3 other similar boats in my general area. There was a Contest 44 in Stonington but have not seen any smaller models locally.
