Bit of a long shot on here but you never know! My youngest has decided to start sailing again after a bit of a break so I am looking for an old,cheap mast for a topper,does'nt need to be beautiful,just functional and cheap!

Here's hoping. Thanks.

Got a spare set of sails including the kite,in fact probably got everything apart from a decent hull and the boom.Sails won't win you any races mind.
