Westsail 32

What can we say about the Westsail 32? A solid, popular small cruiser that's been made for many years; we've sold Monitors to at least 115 (!) of them. The early Monitor mounts were "works in progress" as the design parameters were explored. We now have custom mounting tubes ready-made for boomkins with or without a wooden cross-beam below the aft ends of the boomkin arms, and for the Bud Taplin custom stainless steel boomkin. Other custom mounts can be made up as necessary. We have many photos.

"Pelican" - Bodega Bay, California. Another current wood cross-beam boomkin mount. This one is the boomkin variant with a stainless steel strap over the crossbeam, but the presence of the cross-beam determines the mounting tube type.

The upper mounting tubes for a boomkin with just a stainless steel cross-strap and no wood cross-beam - note the tall brackets closest to the Monitor (to account for the absence of the cross-beam).

Thanks to Ted Crocker, who sent us this photo of five Westsail 43's plus another unknown boat, all sporting Monitors, at the 2013 Westsail Rendezvous in San Leandro. (There appears to be a lone Fleming near the far end).
