Rudder Posts, Spars and Tubes

Spars, Posts, and Tubes

CCI has always been an innovator, and now we are turning our attention to building high quality structural tubes using our proprietary processes. Usually in carbon fiber, but we can work with other materials as well.

In 2014 we added autoclave capability to our shop, with a 12″ diameter, 20′ long heated pressure vessel.

Rudder Posts

For several years we have fabricated our own carbon fiber rudder posts for our custom rudder customers. But now we are also an accepted industry supplier of bare posts to other boat building shops. Our commercial clients include J-Boats, C&C Yachts, C.W. Hood, and Morris Yachts.

This large carbon fiber boom for a Newick 42 trimaran is but one example of the custom spars we have built. It features localized internal reinforcement patches where needed, raised pads for winch mounting and clutches, and provisions for reefing lines.

22' long carbon fiber whisker poles for classic wooden yacht  

This pair of whisker poles are 22′ long, double tapered in autoclaved carbon fiber, then painted with Awlgrip and refitted with original bronze pole ends.  Going on a large classic wooden yacht.

Our i550 mast design was drawn by well known Naval Architect Eric Sponberg.   A proper spar cross section, not just a round tube, which makes good use of unidirectional and biaxial carbon fiber in its layup.  Boom and sprit also available.

This spinnaker pole is a straight carbon tube, with end fittings added. We’ve also done single and double tapered carbon spinnaker poles for smaller boats all the way up to 50 footers. If you’ve seen it in aluminum, we can probably do it in carbon!
