Question Just a question about a mast?!?

So I came into a mast, and I am not a sailor, it's just been sitting on our property for god only knows how long. It is some kind of fiber weave, 24" tall and 6" in diameter. I do not see where any boom would attach (boom is the correct term for the horizontal part that holds a sail,no?), but it does have a rope (the rope is in bad shape), that goes through the thing top to bottom and, and it has a plastic looking top with a concave hole into which the rope goes into at what I assume is the top.

I wonder what kind of boat could use such a mast and what it is worth? I have a friend who builds boats and he knows a little. He thought it was likely some kind of racing mast, and figured it was at least worth $500, but he only builds yachts and he is certainly no authority on the matter. Any help I can get would be appreciated and I can get some pictures tomorrow if that will help. Thanks in advance!
