You could also make your own fiberglass sleeve. I’d make the walls of such about 3/8 thick. Probably use west epoxy. Bond it into one half of the spar. I’d Make it about 2 ft long that’s what’s I’ll do if I ever have a broken mast.

Hey Ix,
I just found your youtube channel. Some very interesting videos there.
Your POM light is cool. You need a video of how to make one.

I picked it up used from Dowsar Marine Hamilton Ont. Canada
I imagine it,s made by the company that made the Spar "mast"
