    Default Free mast

    If interest. I think it may be for a Lightning, but not certain. I'll measure it tomorrow. It's wood, has jumper struts. The owner only knows that it was with a wooden boat, which had a centerboard.

    (Since it's free I'm trusting that I'm not in violation.)

    Free Mast

    This begs the question: Is the "free" in free mast as expensive as the "free" in free boat?

    Geezus, ****** excuse me! You can take this and stick it...



    If there is interest, Steve Bauer knows how to reach me. The gent has moved the mast since I spoke with him yesterday. I don't know why. I suggested to him that he could put an ad in WB for free if giving it away. I'm happy, tho time constrained, to give it a better looksee if someone is interested.

    If you get a percentage by weight, it's probably a small one... Good question though!
