badsanta Put a light on top and stick it in the ground, Looks like a light pole. They make them out of a spiral weave and are black, looks like one.

I agree, it doesn't look like a mast at all.

Could be a bowsprit as you suggest, or a whisker/spin pole.

But I have some doubts as to whether it has anything to do with a sailboat.

markjs Sorry I'd kind of spaced this out. Not exactly on top of my priorities list, but it won't let me post photos. I'll try again....

blt2ski Could be whats left of a carbon spinaker pole, or the boom, and not a mast. Again, with out pics, who knows what it is.

With only one post, not sure if pics or links will work to post a pic, with out doing the post 1, then post 2 or some such thing.......

sailingdog Photos would help a lot. I'm guessing it is 24' not 2' long and 6" in diameter...

Just a question about a mast?!?

So I came into a mast, and I am not a sailor, it's just been sitting on our property for god only knows how long. It is some kind of fiber weave, 24" tall and 6" in diameter. I do not see where any boom would attach (boom is the correct term for the horizontal part that holds a sail,no?), but it does have a rope (the rope is in bad shape), that goes through the thing top to bottom and, and it has a plastic looking top with a concave hole into which the rope goes into at what I assume is the top.

I wonder what kind of boat could use such a mast and what it is worth? I have a friend who builds boats and he knows a little. He thought it was likely some kind of racing mast, and figured it was at least worth $500, but he only builds yachts and he is certainly no authority on the matter. Any help I can get would be appreciated and I can get some pictures tomorrow if that will help. Thanks in advance!
