The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I would like to alter my mast by adding a section to the bottom of it. I would like a piece that is around 2 to 3 feet, plus a couple more feet for the splice section. I've been told at least twice the long dimension of mast which is about 6.7", so a splice of maybe 3' (or 30") would work. Shipping would need to be to either a freight forwarder on the west coast of US or to Alaska, where I am.

    My alternative is to construct a section of composite mast.. but I would need to bug a designer to give me the layup schedule.

    The mast is this one: Isomat NG37 Mast https://www.rigrite.com/Spars/Isomat_Spars/Isomat_Masts/NG37_mast.php
    which is off several models of older 30-ish foot boats listed in that link. I do plan to have 2 pairs of spreaders.
