Your 30 doesn't have a very big rig so I expect that the mast was repaired at some point with a joint. Ut can be a lot cheaper to splice a peice in than to repklace the entire mast. I've seen plenty of one designs with spliced masts and I wouldn't think it anything to worry about unless there were any evidence of some type of problem developing.
