I am looking for a light mast similar to the one circled in the photo above. The 1981 Chris-Craft 381 Catalina I am purchasing is missing its mast. The mounting plate is still there and I would like to install the same or similar. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks.
Appears to be similar to the mast for a 35 Commander, not that, it makes it easy to find. Were you to want to make one I could at some point give rough dimensions.
Try some of our suppliers in the library links section
I think I have one that came off a 1986 410 commander not sure if that would fit
your Catalina I will check to see if it still is at my other location I live in
would not be hard to replicate. I have one on my 31 and could measure and photograph for you. I have dismantled mine for repairs etc and the key is the base piece.

I ended up buying Doug Verkaik's mast off of his 410 Commander. It was a great starting point but still 31 years old so it had some rot and the yardarms had some misalignment. After some modification and restoration, this is how it looked installed. I was happy that I modified it to remove the top section with the yardarms, as this reduced the height to suit the 381. This came in handy as I just made it under the bridge at Lock 45 in Port Severn with inches to spare.
I believe I have what you need. It came off a Cavalier. I will get it out and compare it. give me a call at 609-412-6767. DAve
Dave, Thanks for the offer but note my post above. I found a mast back in May, resto-modded it and have had it installed since mid-June. WW
