    Hi Jeff, requires a login to access files. Just an idea but if the top section of your wooden mast is okay maybe you could do what Annie did. Build a composite mast.

    Hello, all, and Merry New Year to you.
    I have come across a modest sum of money and will be able to afford a new mast for Seablossom.  I damaged her wooden mast considerably getting it unglued from the deck when I bought her, although I have been pretending otherwise so I could go sailing, but now I have a choice.
    I priced carbon and it's out of the question.  Of the aluminum options, should I go with a flagpole?  Typically flagpoles are tapered.  Or should I go with a straight tube?  I'm not very interested in trying to make up a step-tapered tube.
    Does anyone have pictures of the step they are using for an aluminum mast, or suggestions on that portion of the project?
    Paul recently designed me a new rig, so the specifics of what I'm trying to do with this mast can be found here.
