Re: mast from wood to aluminum

Thanks again for all your comments

(Markwesti) and (capttb)
As far as a new mast goes I am actually surprised at the cost of new (cheaper than I thought) however Dwyer is unable to get the larger extrusion and is unsure of when it might be available. Any suggestions of other manufactures?

(Markwesti)
You are correct in your assumption that I am not a rigger. However I have worked with it (replacing and fabricating) on towers, boats, and high end homes (structural and architectural). I figure I can replace the wire and fittings myself, I might be wrong but I think a lot of people re-rig who are not riggers.
As far as going taller its just a thought, as is going aluminum. I could end up keeping the wood stick.
I don't really know any riggers that are N/A's and don't really see the comparison. I have had some short conversations with a N/A.
