thats a no i recon, the alloys aged brittle and corroded and really has reached end of life. if you could find a tube with the correct dimensions to sleeve it on the outside it will not have the flex that the mast requires for sail shape and maybe too wide to insert in the mast stepThe insurance adjuster suggested this could be repaired?
That's good to know! Once I started trailering some distances a good bit I picked up a policy, but figured it would only be helpful for a road incident or it I really t-boned someone on the race course.$554 Canadian shipped ,deductible is $100.
This is why I pay $150 a year to insure Laser.
No, the Radial mast is still much lighter. The construction (by Ian Bruce, and as I understand it) was made like that to get an optimal bend using standard tubes available in the early 1980s. It was only much later discovered that it may bend permanently under extreme vang tension, and is now being changed to carbon.Is it just to keep the weight of the two masts the same?
