Mast Section

Post by kevinbatchelor » June 26th, 2018, 2:19 am

A while a go a fellow posted in the Hobie forums that he was trying to work out a deal to buy mast to retro fit to his H21SE from Aquarius. He mentioned he needed to get a few more people on board to help make it worth it for Aquarius.

Is it possible to buy a mast from aquarius, how much would it cost?

Kevin,

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.

If you are interested in a mast extrusion please contact Tom @ 651-462-SAIL and he can provide you with estimated cost details, etc.
