Flash Back Friday – Wing Mast

18 Footers over the many years since their conception in 1892, developed from timbers boats to high tech carbon fibre, reducing the number of crew members needed over the years from 20 to only needing 3. In 2012 a young innovating skipper by the name of Jonathan (Jono) Whitty came to CST to help create his latest concept, the “Wing Mast”. Not only did we supply Jono with the engineering and production to make such a mast but we were determined to make sure it would point towards the sky as well as be fast.

Flashback Friday

Today we are blowing out the cobwebs and looking back to 2010 when we made the most highly loaded tube in CST history. Transitioning the 95,000 kg working loads into the laminate made it an extremely complex tube to engineer as well as manufacture. We had to ensure that the safety factors were sufficient which resulted in the laminate thickness in some areas exceeding 75mm. Many new production processes were developed for this project, ranging from thick laminate curing to incorporating the metal threaded ends during the winding. This was a great milestone in CST history.
