I am considering making an offer on a 1968 sailboat that had the original SparCraft mast
snap after a wooden spreader broke, and it was repaired with an inner riveted sleeve and the break was then welded. This happened quite some time in the past with no issues since then.
Should I have serious concerns about the mast
for the long term?? I might consider replacement if the seller agrees to concessions and a surveyor
saying that it's no longer viable.
This is a 62' +/- spar, I would replace the boom anyways as it was shortened significantly for racing
PHRF in the past.
How much would it cost for a total rigging
replacement, standing rigging
included?? I have no idea at this point, any input would be appreciated.
