Where to get extruded mast section?

Hello, I am fixing up a venture 21, and I got a mast on ebay, then I got the sails, turns out that the mast is to short. It is a mast that steps onto the deck, and it is two piece for convienent trailering. If I could just get a section of the same stuff I could fabricate it to be telescopic with the main section (kind of like it already is) So my question - Does anyone know where I can buy extruded mast sections, or better yet - does anyone know where a boat junkyard is?, at first I thought that they must exist, but I haven't been able to find any. Thanks - Gorlog

It is amazing where you can find 'Junk'!
I have a 30' mast from a MacGregor 26M that has been creased at about 6' above the base so there is still 24' of useable mast. I cranked on the mast raising winch a bit too hard on the final inch and creased it, so had to buy a replacement. It may be a bit stout for a venture 21 but may be useable. I have been meaning to list it on Craigslist locally to sell it because it is a bit long to ship anywhwere. Pm me if interested.

It's always in that last rachet, last turn of the buckel, that single finishing stoke of the tool that the **** hits the fan, or the mast buckels, or you hit a gass line in the ground (trust me I know) - but seriously, thank you for offering me the section of mast that you have, it sounds like it would be perfect for my application, but shipping indeed seems a problem - from what I've seen on ebay, it would probably cost $300 just to ship - and be a pain in your ass. I just looked at the site that poopdeckpappy recomended - thanks poopdeckpappy- and it looks like I could get what I need for a little more than $100. I can't believe that I didin't find that site untill just now, I was starting to think that they didin't even make that same extrusion of mast anymore - but there it is. Thats why this site is so great.
Thanks Again - gorchew
