    Default Free Gaff Rig Spars Long Island NY

    26' mast and boom, gaff 18'?
    A friend called today from an auto repair shop (not his) and described a gaff rig that had been stored there. They want it gone. I called LI Maritime Museum, no space. Reached out to East End Classic Boat Society, awaiting response. Any other suggestions? Anyone here who can move it? I don't want to see it burned or cut up in a dumpster.

    Interested but not likely to make the trip. Good luck.

    I haven't seen them in person, just a pic. I would guess spruce. I contacted LI Maritime Museum, not interested. I also contacted the East End Classic Boat Society, they are trying to arrange transport.

    They could make good parts for a nautical flag pole for someone:

    well let me know how it works out,
    in fact, if they want it but can't arrange transport maybe i could help.
    probably would be fine in my old truck with some cribbing for the back

    Thanks! Yesterday I spoke to the mechanic, who referred me to the owner. I'm communicating with EECBS, but I also let the mechanic know there is another interested party (you).
