Re: repairing dent on the mast

Thanks everybody for the answers.

bassmanss: ouch, sorry to hear that! I still have hope that I can salvage this one. I don't have money to buy another one right now, probably even a used one (I'm buying new standing rigging as well, not cheap).

I'll keep an eye out for bargains though, who knows.

I'm having the rigger build a bigger base as well as a support which braces the mast. Regarding the compression fitting, it's a great idea, I'll look into it. Should it be made of aluminum or stainless steel?

overbored, you mention an interesting technique for removing the dent. I didn't think it was doable until now. I'll look into it.
