Making a whisker/spinnaker pole?
I can get a boom from a Hobie 16 and/or a mast from a Sunfish for free. The boom dimensions are 9'2" x 3" while the mast is 9'6" x 1.75". Would it be possible or is it worth it to make either of these into a whisker or spinnaker pole for my 25' Helms sloop?
Obviously neither would be telescoping so storage on deck could be a problem. But I was thinking that I might be able to attach end fittings for a reasonable cost and have an inexpensive pole for winging out my genoa or possibly flying my spinnaker.
