I have had another look at my two Moses masts the 101 an early edition 82 cm mast.grigorib wrote: ↑Tue May 05, 2020 10:38 pmMine is 1435 grams without bolts and there’s zero rake on it. If you align it against a wall and measure distance it’ll be exactly same as if you turned it 180 degrees and measured the sameFoil wrote: ↑Tue May 05, 2020 6:43 pmwell look at that!
you do have a different 82cm mast, mine lines up with my 101 mast and it only has 4 mounting holes.
I did get one of the first in the UK, maybe the first production which they have changed slightly, I wonder if the weights differ like the early versions of some of the wings
mine weighs in at exactly 1464 grams, no screws
It looks like some 82cm masts will have 6 mounting holes, mine clearly only came with 4, but if I needed to move the mast back more then drilling a few more holes in the mast is feaseable maybe.but my boards tracks go quite far back for any wing combo.
grigorib is right, I was wrong(sorry)the 82cm mast is not canted, it's straight down at 90deg from the base plate, which has the effect of moving the coe further forward slightly, and this amount will differ depending on which length you are comparing it with.
But, and this is where I was convinced they were at the same angle, I found the 82cm mast worked so well in exactly the same position as I have the 101cm mast - 9.5cm from the tail end of the board, (edge of base plate to rear edge of board in my case)
Leaving me another 1cm of rearward space if so needed.
As for the width of both masts, the the width near the top end of both masts (near the M of Moses) is almost the same on both masts, but then the taper on the 101cm mast is a lot more when compared to the 82cm, see photo, making the 82mast appear quite wide near the fuse end, there is still a taper on the 82cm mast but it's only very small and not really visable to the naked eye
