I guess that makes both of us vultures. I was thinking about that mast
as a backup/replacement for my mizzen
It's too bad someone with some woodworking skills doesn't pick that thing up. There were three plastic boats that were 28-32' long, totally gutted inside but the rigging
were 100% sound, that the local yard I was moored at in WA chopped up and set out in a dumpster because nobody claimed them for free.
It is too bad. But it's also part of the cycle, I guess. Old shipped out in favor of new. I think most of us love those older wooden lines, though.
