Oh yeah, on The schooner, we didn't want to risk the rig on something as exerimental as Spruce so the spars you see in that photo, masts, gaffs and booms are all carbon fiber.
Bob - do you know what the specific paint was that was used on those carbon spars on the schooner? I want to paint (repaint) the spars on my Fortune that colour but haven't been able to find the right shade in the colour charts.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
