Question for Tom or Matt

Post by tnell » June 5th, 2018, 12:06 pm

Are new aluminum mast extrusions ad/or complete mast assemblies still available? I know you guys have a lot of parts available but not sure about the mast. Hope I never need one but you never know.

That is a great question!

The demand for Carbon masts has steadily increased over the years which directly effects the demand for aluminum extrusions. Unfortunately the aluminum extruder we have historically used changed ownership and is no longer interested in pushing the long extrusion lengths needed for masts. We are currently looking for an alternate source and hopefully can identify a suitable vendor in the near future.

I hope you find a new vendor. I bet the demand for aluminum masts goes up some as our boats get older and used spares become even more scarce.
