Wood vs. Aluminum Spars
Can someone layout the pros and cons for each mast material?
Here's what I've got so far (correct me if I'm wrong):
Wooden Mast Cons:
- More maitainence w/ varnish, paint, etc.
- No internal halyards
- Wiring for masthead lights? VHF antenna? Etc?
- More weight aloft?
- Less strength?
Wooden Mast Pros:
- Salty looks
- Easier replacement in remote countries?
