Re: Aluminium mast damage/repair
I'm not a metallurgist.
Most of the damage I see in your pics looks superficial.
The mast has to stand up to compression loads.
I'm not sure if you should have the newly exposed aluminum anodized but likely a good idea. I'd also guess that with some marine epoxy and cloth you could build up a collar over the damaged area.
What kind of boat is it?
