Re: newbe to sailboats need help

wow, looks like a junior-sized Finn. Kind of cool. Aside from the sail, it looks nice.

With that unstayed and rotating-mast (?) rig with slotted gooseneck, I doubt you'll find a suitable aluminum substitute for either mast or boom. I would say stick with the the woodies and have fun.

Dwyer mast company ( has a variety of shapes and sizes, but as nolatom said, finding just what you need may be a challenge. The mast and boom in the picture look to be in decent shape, so I'd agree to stick with them for now. If you're feeling ambitious, Sailrite ( | Home) can help you make a sail.
