    You might take a look at Michael Kasten Marine Design for some ideas. He makes modern gaff rigs using aluminum pipe for the mast instead of steel or wood (although he bends the sails with track rather than using hoops.) His web site is at http://www.kastenmarine.com

    I list some references on my Gaff Rig Pages, at http://users2.ev1.net/~fshagan/gaffrig.htm Of the ones listed, the book The Gaff Rig Handbook by John Leather would be best for info on traditional design. But none of them have info on sources that you could use for actually obtaining the materials. But someone here will undoubtably speak up!
