Yes this is a great idea and initiative.
By the way I'm looking for advices on what type of aloy should I use to make more solid tubes than carbon poles.
Carbon poles tends to break easily in a broach against the shroud...
I know we dont broach much at the top of the fleet but on wavy conditions while gybing it just happened to me...
I believe aloy tubes are far more solid and cost one third of the price carbon tubes while the weigh difference is neglictable.
I've seen one boat set with such double aloy poles and it was looking pretty good.
I've been looking at tubes the ULM fan uses to build their flying craft. Has anybody tried something alike? If yes what type of tube has been used?
I think 38mm is right but I wonder about the thickness 1.5mm or 2mm?
Thanks for sharing.
