Holland 38
So I've got this Mast and boom that is a pretty awesome setup for tuna fishing. It was built for my Holland 38. I am going in a different direction and no longer need. I am having a smaller antenna mast built for the boat and would like to sell this set up. I did not list in classified because I'm looking for input in what I should do with it before listing. It came with the boat and probably cost a small fortune to build. Its rough dimensions are as follows: 24' from deck to top. It is about 8" diameter at the base and tapers to the top. There is a step built into the deck and tied to the stringers and four stays, two forward and two aft. The boom is about 15' from mast to tip. It is equipped with a 12 volt winch (which I have never operated). One of the guys I was looking to have build my new mast suggested chopping off the top end and fabricating into new mast. I don't like that idea because I think there is someone who could use this mast. I know it is very costly to buy a piece of aluminum that is a pretrusion (tapers?). So input is what I need....Butcher and sell for scrap or go to classified section and what is it worth?

I'd make sure it isn't something you can use for your boat, sounds like a nice rig and no matter who buys it they still will have to adapt it to their own boat. Aluminum is expensive like you said, cheaper to adapt than to make new unless its just to big/heavy for your rig.
