Until 2019 shipping small parts would always be cheapest by post.
Starting 2020 this is no longer the case, especially outside the EU.
097 Plastic mast
New mast 2018
Starting 2018 the mast is sourced from a new supplier.
It can be that this new mast is more susceptible to UV radiation and may need painting at some point in its life, if the glass fiber becomes exposed.
Option for "Tiller"
The mast length is set with a green tube clamp that is fixed with extra long bolts.
This allows you to add a short "tiller" to the clamp to serve as a help in setting the course.
