1976 Cheoy Lee Midshipman Mast

Does the mast of a 1976 36’ Cheoy Lee Midshipman separate at the outside cabin surface or is it one piece to the keel? I just want to know if I can lay the mast down to work on it or do in need to go up.

Thanks in advance


According to the drawing available here on SailboatData.com: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/luders-36-cheoy-lee

the boat appears to have a deck (or cabin-top) stepped mast. It would have to go down through the inside aft corner of the head, and it does not show up there in the drawing. Deck-stepped and keel-stepped masts can both be climbed. They can also both be unstepped and laid down to work on. The choice may depend more upon what work needs to be done than how the mast is stepped. Unstepping the mast on a 36’ boat is an undertaking in either case. Climbing them is also dangerous, and is only done with the boat floating afaik.
