I got an Old Fat Boat
She's Slow But Handsome

I don't have any of the web sites saved. There is a big salvage yard over in St Pete, and a smaller one in Daytona, plus one up in St Augustine I've gone to once or twice. If you can't find them on the web, try yellow pages.com . If they don't do sales online. They'll take order over the phone. I would also recomend looking up salvage yards in Mississippi and Louisiana. There was alot of wrecked boats going on Ebay after Katrina. There's probably more that have been dragged out of the swamps by now.

After seven years of living and cruising, plus 20 years of ownership, fixing not dumping is probably most cost effective. This is a tempting upgrade though. 35' Wildcat SA 350

I would contact Gene Gammon at http://www.irwinyachts.com/
to see if he might have any leads on used masts/sails that might be suitable.

thanks danjarch will do .it seems extremly hard to find a wholsale parts place that deals in salvage over the internet.
looks like the best way is to contact the yards thru the yellow pages .

"All that aside who would buy a boat without sails or mast?"
I know someone who did. Bought a derelict from a yard and got the rest together and still made out OK on the whole deal--but he's got great luck with such things, and found a mast and boom that were "close enough" to the original to work.
In Florida, I'd call Sailorman and if they can't get a replacement rig--ask them about other breakers' yards and places to try calling. Locally--because shipping can be a huge expense.

lastconch, Dons Marine Salvage is in St. Pete. They always have a few masts/booms and such. A friend of mine has a mast off a 33 Morgan I'm sure he'd let go very cheap. It has a splice just above the spreaders that needs repaired otherwise it's in very good shape.( Location, Hudson FL.)
Bill,

If you want the security of a new rig, but the savings of used equipment, call around to your local riggers. They often acquire used equipment. If you contract them to rerig the boat, they will inspect the rig before installing it. If it is up to you to locate the mast, if you ask, they will probably be willing to check it out before you buy it. No decent rigger is going to want to install a questionable rig. We have a rigger here in RI that gets decent equipment from scrapped boats all the time.

One hand for the helm, one elbow for yourself!
