Smile Need Sunfish Mast (free)

I am putting together an old sunfish given to me by a friend. This sailboat is a starter for my kids to get into sailing. If anyone in the Houston/Galveston has an old mast just laying around my son could put it to good use.
Thanks,
Keywest

IIRC, the mast for a sunfish is basically just a piece of aluminum pipe... not too fancy...and only has a single block and cleat on it. Might be fairly easy to make a replacement mast.... I don't know the specific dimensions, but those should be fairly easy to find.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I looked into that, but I would have to buy a full joint of material.
thanks for the suggestion.

A local fence company might be able to sell you the short section of aluminum tubing that you need. Might be worth checking out.

Has anyone successfully tried this? I'm presently considering picking up a project hull for free and trying to rig everything up for a hundred bucks...
