Albert - presumably a dismasting? Have the ins co said they will reinstate?
I doubt there will be a spare T300 mast knocking around.
Have you contacted a local rigger? If not, your first port of call.
I imagine you will need to get a quote, clear it with ins co & then get the rigger to order mast & restep. New standing rigging an absolute must.
Assuming sails not damaged they should fit new mast provided sail track etc unchanged.

John thanks for Your input. I'm going this way now, the one sail is damaged its small gib, not even one year old. it got under the boat Sad the spreader got in to the mast and mast broke, non of standing rigging broke, but i want to change them any way.

Proctor was taken over by Selden.

So they are the best bet.

Good luck.

What caused the break if the rigging didn't fail?

Hi Albert,

Hope you get the new mast replaced without any fuss, did your Proctor mast have a sliding gooseneck by any chance?

Gooseneck is the hinge between the mast and the boom.
