The Mast

The mast was made by Junction Boatyard from wood. It is hollow and coated with fiberglass. The photo shows the cross section of the mast and illustrates the types of wood profiles used to create the round shape, it looks a lot easier than the original Wharram design which involves a lot of sanding to get it in the round shape.
