I am restoring a centreboard version of a 1950’s Fairy Duckling dinghy and I have an old Proctor gold-anodised boom that came with the boat but I need an aluminium mast. I am advised that a Gull dinghy mast would be OK but I have also checked that a Cadet dinghy mast would fit.
Does anyone have a suitable Gull or Cadet aluminium dinghy mast available please?
Attached photo of the Duckling I restored over 30 years ago to teach my grandchildren to sail - but when they grew out of it I sold the dinghy. Now we have our first great-grandson I am restoring my second Duckling.

Ahoy.

I have a Duckling, its had the centreboard case removed and covered over, when it was given to me it came with a mirror dinghy rig, not that I have ever tried to put the rig up.

I do have the Uffa Fox drawing of the rig if you'd like a copy.

I have a complete rig (but no sails) bottom boards, dagger board and rudder from a duckling.
PM if interested. Spars are wooden not metal, so maybe off an earlier one?
