A Well Kept Secret—The Larsen Marine Spar “Shed”
If you’ve been around Larsen Marine, and you own a sailboat, you probably have heard someone refer to the “spar shed.” The Larsen Marine spar shed is a one-of-a-kind, state of the art mast storage facility without parallel in the marine services industry.
Is it really a “shed?” (dictionary: a slight or crude structure built for shelter)
Hardly. Here’s a picture of one small section of it. Look closely, it’s worth it. Better yet, stop by for an in-person view if you haven’t already. We’ve yet to find another one like it in the world.
This is where we store and service masts and rigging for sailboat storage customers.
Masts stored in these specially-made racks inside a fully-enclosed, heated and secure building can be retrieved and placed on a custom-made, full-length work bench for service and repair any time of the year.
Our mast storage “building” has walls rather than a fence, a roof for cover instead of an overhanging tree liimb, and a concrete floor that works much better than the industry standard of dirt, weeds and tall grass.
