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.

https://fortecarbon.com/marine/mast-and-boom/

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.

If you are hoarding 4 Al rigs how many rolls of TP and bottles of sanitizer do you have?

 New to this forum so just learning how to get around.  I'm in search of a mast also.  Mine is crushed about 1/4" or so at the rear of both spreaders.  Didn't notice when I took is down to move for Cristobal, so could have happened during move, or is it possible lowers could have been too loose for conditions?  Insurance will pay for carbon fiber mast, but I was happy with the aluminum mast.  Does anyone have one for sale, where is it, and how much?  Otherwise, will my standing and running rigging fit a carbon fiber mast?
