DoomDahDoomDoom is on a distinguished road
How many years can you typically count on a mast surviving? I expect this to be a very variable answer, but assuming that the boat has been sailed and raced for most of it's life, would you trust a 30-year-old mast with fairly new shrouds? Or would a boat that has recently replaced all standing rigging be *that* much more appealing?
