Thanks, I'll compare tomorrow with my set up. There may be similarities though the setup is different in certain respects. Will let you know how I get on.

Hi Robert
I'm not sure if this will help you but your mast seems to have a similar set-up for raising / lowering as on the Johanna. See pictures of bracket and winch assembly. The fore wire of the mast doubles as its lifting and securing device once raised into position. A hand winch mounted on the bow is linked via a deck pulley to the upright bracket to pull the mast or lower it into its stowage position. The fore wire runs from the top of the mast to the bracket. Once pinned in position and the fore wire is attached to a pad eye on the bow, the bracket is removed.

Ive owned a 43', c.1900 iron tjalk for the last 5 years, I've done a lot of restoration on it but I still haven't got around to raising the mast or even servicing the winc. Was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some pointers to help me get started, or better still if anyone local can come look over it with me, I'm moored on Ash island on the Thames, by Hampton Court.

Hi there
I'm looking for a bit of advice from anyone with experience of old sailing barges. Ive owned a 43', c.1900 iron tjalk for the last 5 years, I've done a lot of restoration on it but I still haven't got around to raising the mast or even servicing the winc. Was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some pointers to help me get started, or better still if anyone local can come look over it with me, I'm moored on Ash island on the Thames, by Hampton Court.
I've attached some images to give u an idea of what I'm talking about.
