If you want to make an ally spinnaker pole and because you don't know the final length so want to trim it - nothing fancy needed, where can you get the component bits?

Bide your time Garry - I got a complete working one at Beaulieu boat jumble for a tenner which is about a quarter the price of the component parts. Will look out for one for you.

I`ve just been digging through my garage cos I did have an old one but there is no sign of it. It may be at JK`s so I will ask him, failing that I will ask around and see what turns up.

Do you want a single pole type ie with piston fittings on each end or are you looking for one of a twin pole setup? If the former, what length do you want? I have a double ended single pole (probably from a GP or similar) which is around 6ft (from memory). If it is of interest, then email me and I will check the length.

Tony Blackmore at SailSport can send the ally tube and bits you need - free postage too I think.

Have checked and have three in the shed - all fished out of the mud at Banbury. All around 6ft - two that taper towards each end and one that is untapered. Is this what you are looking for?
