Jay’s Boat Mast Bike Trailer Build

by Ted Johnson

How do you get a 24 foot mast and boom to its 20 foot sailboat if the boat is 30 miles away?  Sound like one of those algebra questions from high school?  Jay’s got the answer and even used ratios to explain his decisions.  He built a trailer, attached it to his bike, and made the long, hilly journey over.  “It was a fun project and a fun day.”  He also made a video of his journey if you find yourself in a similar situation and could use a few pointers..  Here are some of the highlights.

Testing the turning radius.

Road testing – 30 miles to go!

Traffic hour.

Hitting it hard on the hills. (What happened to the bike lane?!) Nearly reached the finish line.  A+ for effort!
