Re: mast from wood to aluminum

Should be a simple matter of finding/ordering a replacement mast and attendant standing rigging, take one out and put the other in.. You may need to modify the step somewhat, but other than that I'd think you'd maybe save some weight aloft (how much depends on how the wooden mast was built), and you'll reduce your maintenance every year.
