If you want the security of a new rig, but the savings of used equipment, call around to your local riggers. They often acquire used equipment. If you contract them to rerig the boat, they will inspect the rig before installing it. If it is up to you to locate the mast, if you ask, they will probably be willing to check it out before you buy it. No decent rigger is going to want to install a questionable rig. We have a rigger here in RI that gets decent equipment from scrapped boats all the time.
