Anyone know where I can get both mast made or does someone just have an extra part laying around? Bairdstokes@gmail.com

Unlikely to find new ones just lying around. There is a mandrel that seems to be sized similarly to my Al 40 CC masts that has a 10" base, tapers down to 5" or more. A 54' section, faired and painted was $30k.

The Junk Rig boats use flag or utility poles which come in both Al and FG. A naval architect could tell you if these would work. They are significantly cheaper.

Whatever route you go, let us know!

I believe these guys may be reasonably priced, but I don't have first hand experience. Freight prices could be an issue, you'd need to check.
