There was another thread on this that was closed because some of the posters were getting carried away with off-topic nonsense. (not me
) I'll be good now. I promise. The discussion was about whether mast
splicing or welding was good or bad or uncommon. This is a PDF file from Sparcraft which is one of the worlds largest spars and systems manufacturers.
On pages 16,17, and 28 they show and discuss internal splicing when required for transportation or other issues. I just wanted to show that splicing a mast
is not uncommon and is in fact required by simple logistics on larger rigs. They show a superyacht with a 49m mast. I wonder how many splices that had. Thank you for you time. BOB
