Sorry to hear about your boat.
Save all the pieces, they could be used as patterns.

Spruce is as common in the PNW as hemlock is in the mid atlantic. Scarf joints made on a 8 to 1 angle and epoxy glued. they will be stronger then the lumber. the hard part is finding someone with the woodworking ability. Again that should be a short search in the PNW. It doesn't have to be Sitka Spruce it can be northern spruce. Both are acceptable.

I don't know about Oaklahoma. I think you will have to travel some. EdenSaw woods comes to mind here. Edensaw Woods Home Page

Just cut the mast sections out above and below the damaged areas at the glue joins. Making new box sections (it is a boxed mast correct?) is not hard. If I had your stick, I could rebuild it. I would suggest nothing less than 12:1 scarphs for a mainmast. Build a jig to make the cuts, actually two. One for the sides and on for the fore and aft sections and use a planer to cut the join angles. I would use a fine saw or even a multitool to cut away the bad sections. Be very careful not to cut into the adjoining sections. Using a chisel or other hand tools to do the last inch or so in case there was a special join used.

As luck would have it this add on our craigs list. Sitka Spruce boards.
Maybe he will ship.

Bummer!

But chin up!

Clear spruce is sill to be had here in the PNW...3 years ago a laid down and old growth that was 52" at the butt...which I measured 4' from the ground when measured....I could have made you 40 masts.

Very sorry for your predicament...

FWIW...Happiness was Oklahoma in my rear view mirror.

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

In response to Gene T craigslist posting maybe someone in or near Walnut Creek could run by and take a look see at the boards. I'm wondering if the craigslist poster meant $5.00 a board foot instead of $5.00 per board.
Check this thread for a person in Walnut Creek

Oh man! Tornadoes are the worst destructive force on the planet in a short time frame. The Gall of those bastids trying to keep owners from salvaging their boats. Good for you and the group of owners for blowing them aside. She's a lovely boat and I wish you the best in getting her whole again. I grew up in So. Ok. going to the celler when a twister threatened, which was often. Still, the 60,000' high thunder bumpers that move through with half an hour of constant lightning are one of the only things I miss about Okla. Lake Thunderbird was my nature escape while attending OU. I hope your resuscitation of her goes smoothly and provides unanticipated bennys.

Thank you

A big thank you to all for the assistance and the well wishes. As the days go by it seems a little less impossible. This forum will have to be my sailing fix for a few months and I am sure I will have more questions. Who knows I might have to start a rebuilding thread.http://www.sailnet.com/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif

Those boats are well built. Mr Rawson whom built those not too far from where I grew up built fishing boats before the sailing series of boats, that went from here in puget sound up to alaska and back ALL the time. Also an FYI for you, not sure of the month, but a Rawson pilot house will be a review boat in GOB in the coming 6-9 months or there abouts.

If you find spruce here in the seattle area, let me or others know, we can check it out for you. There should be some somewhere.
