I'm considering buying a 1992 Vision 32. The surveyor said the mast appears to be two pieces that were welded together. The weld is in the upper section of the mast. He said it was a very clean weld and isn't sure if this is how the mast was manufactured or if it is indicative of a repair. So any Vision 32 owners out there know if the weld is normal or something to worry about? Given the nature of the rig, I'm leary of a welded mast.

While I cannot say with absolute certainty that I remember this correctly, my recollection of the only Hunter Vision 32 that I have been on is that it had a weld in the mast near the hounds (the point that the forestay came into the mast). I assumed this had something to do with the taper which increases from that point upward.

Thanks Jeff, that sounds very similar to what the surveyor said. He thought the rake might change a little at the weld as well.
