Bearing Rings - Sabotina

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Bearing Rings - Sabotina

Post by curtJ » Thu Jul 05, 2018 2:46 pm

Hi All,
I'm looking for something I can use for the mast bearing rings on my soon to be complete Sabotina. The Sabotina is the 8 foot sailboat with the 13 foot mast. I've searched West Marine and haven't had any success. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Curt

Maybe Gayle at Glen L will chime in with info on this. Or another sailboat builder.

You might want to give Downwind Marine in San Diego, CA a call. I have purchased items from them and they are very helpful on the phone.
They also have a website.

Thanks Roberta, Thanks Jimbob. I asked Glen-L directly about the hardware kit I bought and the bearing rings as called for their plans. I'll try Downwind Marine and see what they have. I guess I can test the boat and sail without this bearing and see if the boom will swivel the mast in its current state.
