Re: mast from wood to aluminum

Seems to me you could go taller, more sail etc - your righting moment would change significantly with the weight aloft dropping.
Your center of effort /balance fore and aft would not change so any sail plan change would still have to remain true to that.

I take it you bought the 1981 you were showing/discussing elsewhere?

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
