Hi Brian,

I have a friend in Capetown that just bought a carbon fiber pole and has his old aluminum pole for sale.

Re: wanted whisker pole

That's cool you live in G'ville. I live out Newberry road in the Jonesville area.
The whisker pole is about 21-23 feet and is a padeye type. Don't know the brand it looks like maybe Mack or Mauck something like that.
