Ish; I believe the Hall's mast was a fiberglass tube made for some other purpose (light pole?) and was quite cheap. I'll have to dig out my copy of her book to check for sure. Last I heard of the Halls is that they have sold "Badger" (a Jay Benford 34' dory design with a bolt-on high tech 'keel' - one of the Hall's innovations) and are in S. Africa building a cat - his 'n her hulls Both of her books are worth the read - that lady knows how to make a penny squeal [img]smile.gif[/img]
Please also have a look at the post I just added to "Schooner Porn - and for sale" in this section of the forum. The boat described there was orignally a junk rig.
If you don't think for yourself, someone else will do it for you!
