Hi, I have just placed an order for a new mast with P&B, when I phoned up I was offered either a standard mast or a racing mast (for an extra £100 approx + VAT).
Can anyone tell me the difference between standard and the racing option? Man at P&B didn’t know/could not find out.
Although I join the odd race in my Enterprise, I am not in the same category as the other crews (sometimes not even in the same race!), so I have gone for a standard mast. Having said that I am a bit of a gadget freak, so I might like to play with spreader angles, is it worth me getting spreader adjusters? I could adjust the order up to a week before delivery.

I would be inclined to go back to P&B and insist the tell you the difference.
On Selden’s website they list 2 options;
D14-C070-0514 WAYFARER MAST UNRIGGED
D14-C070-0514R WAYFARER MAST RIGGED
There is nothing about standard and racing options.
a £100 sounds more like the rigging pack.
It depends what you are replacing, you most likely will want the rigging pack.
Seldens website has details of what you get;
hope that helps

Or, even better go to Ian Porter in Emsworth, with whom you can discuss your needs and he would advise and supply you with the correct rig. http://www.porters.org.uk/spare%20parts.htm10/07/2010 at 2:14 pm #9472adminMember
OK, spoke to Ian Pinnell. IT turns out he had two prices in front of him, one for the bare mast, the other which had a suffix “R” which he interpreted to mean “Race”. It actually meant “Rigged” as in with all standing and running rigging.
So mystery solved. Thanks for responding.
