    Sleeves for broken alum. mast

    I need a contact for someone who makes sleeves for spars. I heard of a company in North Carolina, but I can't locate a name.

    No I'll save that for the critical stuff.

    I know the guys at Nance & Underwood. Very nice and informative, but very expensive if they do the work. Nance said he wished he could afford to work on "small" boats like my 38. They rig the mega boats for corporate money, but they can get the sleave for me. From time to time I go by there on saturday mornings to chat. He comes in to feed his cats. (I saw a turnbuckle at their shop that was 8' tall !). He is going to build the new stays, but I have to mount them myself.

    Older post but... Sparcraft in Charlotte may be who you're thinking of
