I have a Superspar M7 [for lighter crews] you can use. It fits a standard Goodwin hull. It does not have shrouds or haliards fitted.

Any good? I will be down Fri eve 8th.

Which hull have you got? I have some masts knocking around...but they might be too long. Story of my life

Dan,

Dicky B has a spare Super Spars M3 mast from 2173 which died on the A3 when an army landrover mounted it from the behind.

Pretty much ready to go in terms of halyards etc etc apart from the need to fix the fitting for your pole system.

Let me know what length you need and we can see if they match up.

Thanks for all your responses.

Wooden one sounds great......

The variable is the floor height under the mast. Your mast should have a black band at sheerline level [ For definition see diagram in home page menu - Boat  -mast measurements]. Measure top of this band to very bottom of mast also.
