patrscoe Thanks Rperret,
yes, you're right. Hall Spars fabricated their spars from start to 81', and then Offshore took most of the spar fabrication from there on.
Offshore told me that they don't make a whole lot of alum masts anymore (mostly carbon), and if they did, they may require a minimum LF.
Still have not verified if they have our mast extrusion from old profiles.

patrscoe I didn't see my mast profile within their website info. S2 subcontracted out all their rigging and they say you can still get the same spar profile... just have to find it...

S2 11.0 Spar Supplier?

After looking through a old sailing log, I found out that in 1989, the first owner of our recently purchased 84' S2 11 cut the mast down by 30" due to a near by bridge. It was disclosed to me and I never notice the difference and perhaps just leaving it alone would save a lot of money and time that I could put some where else but now that I do know, it is driving me crazy.

It appears that they cut the top of the mast as the lower shrouds have not been modified along with the boom attachment and mainsail track.

I want to look into providing a 30" splice at the bottom, modify the spreader and lower shroud locations (move them down 30"), modify my roller furling, alter my sails and replace the upper shrouds. I know this procedure can be done successfully and what would save more time if this could be done towards the top of the mast but I am afraid of failure and I would never be able to see it.

Does anyone know a spar supplier that has the mast profile for the S2 11.0?
I'm in the process of contacting Rig Rite.

Has anyone removed the mast and have already taken measurements of shroud and spreader locations? I don't want to completely assume that they do not modify these locations so I want to double check the measurements.
