    Perhaps you contact Phil Stegall who is building a 42' Trimaran in Jamestown, RI. Even if he prefers a carbon mast ... perhaps he is connected to the Multi sailors and can make you a good contact.http://www.buildatrimaran.com

    any further details on this any idea of weight per metre? Slightly shorter than the mast I need but I'm interested.

    Wing Mast Details

    ROTATING WING MAST

    Better pictures to follow these should help a bit.

    Corley,

    Weight is in the 7-800 lb range for tube and furler. Consider a Le Rouge style mast stepped on a post if you need extra length.

    Better Pictures

    The splice would be tough to remove and re-do. We have a gantry here and could load on a boat hauler's truck. Probably easy to get it to FL area for installation.

    Move quickly as we are going to do whatever soon.

    thanks for the info but not suitable for my application as the section is too heavy I'm looking for something about 6 lb a foot and I would have needed the mast unspliced for container transport.
