Mike switched to aluminum masts a long time ago on all his boats, hasn't built a wooden mast in years. Both Welsford and Byrnes of B and B advocate aluminum spars and Mike is a big fan.

Really well put John! I look at our little fleet here and the used fiberglass boat I bought Mike years ago is almost finished but he stopped it when he began to build boats again.

Then he built a little boat, the Bolger Cartopper and went out on the Texas 200 as therapy. He has never looked back and says he had no idea...
