Steel masts???

Perhaps your friend was making reference to a Stainless steel mast to replace his aluminum? Stronger, costlier, but even if this was the case, being a heavier component, the center of gravity would undoubtably be higher (not a good thing on a sailboat). I have yet to see one at my marina.
