    I've found plenty of sources for hollow birdsmouth spars, but can anyone point me in direction of how to shape "tear drop"/pear shaped sections. :confused:

    Online info preferred

    Do a google search for DN Iceboat - the site has some info on building wooden spars reinforced with carbon.

    Google "wing mast" and you'll come up with a few that might lead somewhere
