I have just posted this on one of the Freedom Yachts forum threads (http://www.freedomyachts.org/viewtop...p=50620#p50620
). There is a disabled sailing group on San Francisco Bay that recently took ownership of a Freedom 21, which was found to have some cracks in the mast. Not sure if they would want the expense of getting a new mast shipped across the country, but if you could hold off on doing anything with the mast for a bit, that would be great. It's too bad you can't get title through some abandoned property law. The F21s are awesome little boats.
