Aluminum Mast
« on: May 21, 2020, 05:56:43 PM »
I had an accident and am trying to file an insurance claim. They are asking the price to replace the aluminum mast. Can anyone provide me with that cost and maybe a picture of receipt if you've purchased one.

Quote/estimate will work. Doesnít matter how old just need something with price.
Photo can be texted to 281-830-2919
Thanks

Venti.  Al mast are not being made anymore by Ballenger so the mast supplier to the class is Forte.

It is a carbon mast but is class legal.   You might find an Al mast usedómaybe from someone responding to this string.  In my experience, most insurance companies are allowing for the purchase of the Forte mast.  Donít forget to price in shipping.

Where did all the Detroit masts go?  If you want aluminum I think that is probably your best bet.
