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?

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.
