    Ok...this a a hypothetical question. My 146 mast has a light ding in the mast about half way up and had a very slight bend, which I had already gently teased out(Bend). What do you guys think of the idea of me finding a length of PVC pipe sized to fit the the inside of the mast and gently tapped it up to the ding to push it (ding) out from the inside. I would then leave the pipe inside to hopefully adding some very light weight, additional support. Crazy Idea?? What are your thoughts??
