seeking advice on tapering an aluminum mast
I am hoping that I can gather some knowledge here on tapering an aluminum spar.
I am re-rigging my boat and will be converting a mast section from mast head to fractional rigged. The hardware to do this is readily available from Sparcraft so that part should be somewhat easy.
I would really like to put a taper in the mast and would like to hear pros/cons of doing this and any advice on how to do it.
I have excellent welders and both mechanical and welding engineers assisting me to do the project so am not completely entering into this blindly.
