Is it a uniform bend with no lateral component? Difficult to imagine something like that happening... If the mast was ever dropped I could see a 'kink' and bend in it..

As to the furler issue Denise brings up that would depend on the style of furler.

Certainly with 11" rake when you should have 6 something's off....
