My 1967 Contest 29 ,which is virually identical exceept for the bottom (full keel) and still has it's original wooden stick which is still in great shape. Like most things concerning boats , it is all about maintenence. If your mast has been maintained and is in good shape now there is no reason why youe shouold have any trouble with it. Just keep it varnished, I took mine down (completely stripped it ) and gave it fourteen coats of varnish, it looks georgeous and always gets alot of nice comments. ALso, if you have any trouble spots with it, wood is very easy to repair. Rick
