Re: Terminology: spar vs. mast
a spar is just a spar until put to use,or when referred to in general as a group- "the spars need varnishing because the PO thought cetol was just fine", just as a reel of rope is rope until cut,at which point it becomes 'line" whihc may become known by other titles when applied ot a specific prupose, and may revert back to being called rope when the purpose demands it, (bolt rope, for example), but when referred to generally all the rope on a boat are called lines.
