Sorry I am in mid production for sailing and kayak parts and accessory catalogs. A busy time of year!
1. Step 1 Tip: Should the mast be taped together with plastic or duct tape? Not that I am concerned with the aluminum shaft but the sail material.
2. Are there any plans in the works to make a mast which has a mechanical attachment to its other half and maybe a larger sail for the Adventure?
No need to tape for chafing reasons. You can tape if it makes it easier to remove the mast sections when stowing away. We are planning a change by adding internal bungee to make the two sections pop together like tent poles.
