kestrel mast

the one from 854 well and truly bit the dust on Saturday. Does anyone have one, or something similar?

Fireball mast is pretty close with an overall length only 25 mm shorter. There is a Superspar on Apollo duck for £85 if that's within budget. I have an old Proctor that came off a Fireball, but it is pretty bare so everything would need to be transferred across from your broken one. Rigging and spreaders would need to be altered to suit a Kestrel anyway. The Proctor has a slight but even bend to the topmast, but is not kinked and would be ok to get the boat sailing again. If you are at all interested I will have a closer look next time I am down at the shed and report on its exact condition.
