Steel masts???

TrueBlue....Steel masts aren''t new. I knew a fellow who used a tapered steel street-light pole for a mizzen mast. It even doubled as a chimney for his wood stove. No problem with draft (He kidded that he had to be careful with the stove lid to keep it from being sucked up the chimney)and it made a convenient hand warmer for the helm. While it may have looked odd on a cold day, the smoke didn''t bother his neighbors.(grin)
