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.

Spars

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.

Tubes

This spinnaker pole for a J24 is a straightforward carbon tube, with end fittings added. We’ve also done double tapered carbon spinnaker poles for smaller boats. If you’ve seen it in aluminum, we can probably do it in carbon!
