Denise is right on the money!! I know of many mast's around that would be a great upgrade to your old Irwin two part mast! Try Certified Sales Inc - liquidation sales they handle many salvage jobs. Jack

Re: Lost rig New Mast/new boat?

I snapped my old spruce boom sailing an awesome wing on wing late last summer. I have been searching for a used 14' boom since September without a lot of luck here in the NorthWest (Portland OR.). I know there should be a ton of salvage yards and consignments but I keep hitting dead ends. Looking for a straight forward extruded aluminum boom. Most used ones above 12'6" begin to included all types of internal "stuff" bells and whistles and the price used exceeds a new one from Dwyer. I would take any suggestions on Salvage yards you may have.

I agree with AjariBonten, besides any boat you purchase is likely to need upgrade/repairs not discovered until after you sail her for a time. Maintaining and upgrading my 40 year old Irwin 32 is always a financial dilemma until I calculate the cost of replacing her with anything I like as well or better. But I have to admit, I am besotted with my boat and can hardly call myself objective or even rational!
Best of luck in your decision making,

Re: Lost rig New Mast/new boat?

There is a mast for a Citation 34 in Ct. you could get for probably $500, with the standing rigging included. Captain Cook boat recycling. Captain A.J. Cook Shipping, well that's a whole new problem.
