W32 Tall Rig

Kenny Kroot

A buddy and former owner of a Westsail told me that the W32 comes in two varieties - short mast and tall mast.

How can I tell which rig a boat has? Is there a big difference in performance between the two?


Bud Taplin

The Westsail 32 cutter only came with a 43' mast. There is one other boat that I know which had a 46' custom mast, but that would not really improve performance. There were also a few built as ketches.

The Westsail 42 and 43 had two different mast lengths. A 50' single spreader, and a 55' double spreader rig. That may have been what he was talking about.
