    We've always raised our mast from the front towards the back, using the main sheet to bring it up.

    I'm going to see if the mast section I have now can be hacked up to make a sleeve.

    I can help

    I was a partner in a Mast Fabrication company in Florida for several years. I can help you with splicing your mast sections, but I will not be able to do it here in a post, as it is a technical process. If you email me, I will get into contact with you and be happy to explain some of the techniques including Tapering the top of the mast, and even some hints on Masthead construction.
