My mast is a single piece of bare, air dried sitka spruce, 40 ft long 4x6 inches no glue , only three knots the size of your little finger nail in it. Been up there 29 years, no problems.
Oh, so it's a modern one then?? My new mast, a couple of feet longer than yours and exquisitely designed and fabricated (and glued) so it's a helluva lot lighter than yours must be, was first raised in 1957..
