De-masted on Lake Dillon

Hunter 26.5 Dillon Colorado
Hi all, trying to replace a spar on a 1987 26.5 Hunter. Snapped the mast in a micro burst. Was hoping to find some advice on how to go about replacing the spar. I have put in for a quote with US spars and shipping cost alone seem cost prohibitive. Was wondering if anybody had any suggestions or ideas where I might be able to track down a used spar to help with the costs. Thanks in advance!

I thought this might of been you on sailing anarchy..but different boat.
I'd call all the salvage warehouses to first find a replacement mast, then figure out how to get it to Dillion.

Craigslist usually has some masts. You may need to do some adjustments

Hey Pacaman77,
I was the other boat on the lake that day. Lost a genoa but that's about it. Hope you found a new mast. I am also on Dock C and hope to meet you one day.

Insurance not covering it? Mine did when I lost mine. My total cost was $250 and the time to re-rig and put it up.
