I've just become the proud owner of a Holder 14 MKII. The boat is in great shape with one exception, the mast is broken into two pieces. It is a two piece mast, and a clean sheer at the joint between the aluminum extrusion and plastic/fiberglass tip. My thought is I can repair this myself less expensively than replacement parts/new parts. My thought is to drill out the foam core and insert a tube (plastic, PVC or fiberglass whatever is available) and glue into place. Is this a reasonable solution? Any suggestions or opinions would be welcome. Forgive me if this topic is already covered in the message board, my searches did not uncover it.

Thanks

Not many Holder owners here...

The CompTip for the Hobie / Holder 14 is no longer available, so repair is the only option. If the tip itself is not actually damaged, I think you can sleeve it.
