New (to me) mast

Earlier this week I found a mast for sale about 2 hrs away, and ended up buying it based on pictures. Yesterday afternoon/evening we went and picked it up. It's rigged a little different than my current one, but I can swap things back and forth a bit. Anywho, it's better than the slightly crooked, busted in half and then repaired one I currently have on Orbweaver. I'll post a few pics later today. Boat project for quarantine!

Of course pics! I should mention that the previous owner threw in a couple other items as well.

Re: New (to me) mast

Mast came with a boat, sails & motor too? Great! Are you going to make it into a catamaran?

Re: New (to me) mast

I thought about catamaran, but the wife said that's crossing a line that's not allowed. [emoji16]
Most likely the hull will be scrapped, there's a few soft spots on the deck. I figure I made out pretty good, the whole lot was about 1/3 what it was going to cost me for just a new mast. And half what a new outboard was going to be.

Re: New (to me) mast

If not a catamaran, perhaps a ketch
