replacement mast or repair 2Mon 25 Nov 2013 20:43:35
steveh steveh Mon 25 Nov 2013 15:20:15 Hi everyone
This is my first time on the site. When lowering my mast for the winter a gust of wind must have caught it and it fell down on the crutches and snapped in 2 about 600mm from the pivot heel. Does anyone know where i can get a replacement mast or is it possible to repair it. I live in Norfolk. Any help or advise wold be very much appreciated

Stephen Weldon not far from you in Suffolk has got original mast tubes for the Manta, but you would still have to build mast foot, mast head, spreaders, etc.

I had a new mast made professionally, and so did Mark. It will set you back around 1000 pounds.
I made some enquiries with Sailspar in Essex and they were very helpful, but finally I ordered from a local company here in the Netherlands.
