Re: broken spar

First question, what country are you in? The forum is global so recommendations would depend on your location.

Would also help track down possibilities if you could give us the year and builder of the boat if you know it.

If you are in the USA have you tried Rig Rite Spars Main Page ?

They deal with a lot of different mast styles.

I think your best option would be to sleeve the broken section onto the base. Assuming the top piece is in reasonably good condition.

Re: broken spar

local salvage yard here, Dons Salvage has a pretty large mast selection. I got lucky and found just what I needed to repair mine. Its in largo florida, If you sent a profile to their mast guy Im sure he would check for you.

Welcome to Don's Marine Salvage Yard. Your new and used boat parts heaven!

Re: broken spar

Aha. Just looked a little more closely.

Beantownbob? Maybe you're from Boston?

Rig Rite is just next door in RI.
