Not sure that I can express it accurately, but as I understand the situation, the difference is in the nature of the support at the deck level. A deck stepped mast is free to "pivot" at the step. The step does not offer any support to keep the lower sections from bending out of column. The keel stepped mast has lateral support at deck level, and the inherent stiffness of the tube means that any bending must start higher up the mast, and hence the tube can be a bit less stiff and still stay straight.

A practical difference is that the keel stepped mast will remain upright with little or no support from the stays and shrouds. This is handy when re-rigging in situ or when you need to remove the forestay in order to get into a travel lift... or when a wire breaks under load!

I hope that someone can say all this better than I have done (if it is in fact correct!!

Jim
You did a good job at an explanation.

Thanks Neil ! Above and beyond... Just curious what your guy says he can do for you if you were looking for the piece of section, spreader section, and factory splice...
