Hello, I'm building a 14ft sailng skiff which will carry about 160 sqft of sail and will have a double wire. I'm figuring on how to make a mast that will cope eith the kind of loads this will result in. The thing that is on my mind an aluminum mast made from som sort of extruded aluminum, but I want it tapered the top 5ft. Is it possible to do this with normal tools as vises and pipewrenches??
If there are any way to do this please reply and soothe my worrying soul
