Re: painted or anodized mast
A painted mast is gorgeous.
However, there are enough maintenance items aboard than to need another, particularly one that requires stepping the mast and removing all the rigging. A painted mast will get scratched and it will need to be repainted. Some say that moisture under a paint scratch will corrode the aluminum much faster than bare aluminum.
I say, no paint.
