I am building my first yacht, which is similar in size to a Marblehead class.
I have found a very good and cheap local supplier of pultruded CF tube. Is this material suitable to be used as an RC yacht mast?? Using pultruded CF I can get a 2.1 metre mast (3 x 1m lengths of 12mm OD tube 2mm wall thickness) for AU$41.70 versus $156 for a McConaghy built filament woound mast with 1.5mm wall thickness.
Thoughts please Ladies and Gentlemen…
