HAHA no the mast is actually quite beefy said the boat rigger I tried to find a new mast with.
Problem was, I turbo'd the boat with a Carbon fibre centre board, new rudder
and a mast head
asym spinnaker from a 19' racing
The mast never had a chance when the boat popped out and starting skipping across the water
. My big mistake was not adding spreader or backstay to my mods. However that was the best 60 seconds of sailing I've had! Was pretty wild solo.
Sadly for Das Boot I found a bigger and better boat. Unsure if I can find a buyer for it without mast.
