I need to repair my mast for my Hobie 21 SE mast. The previous owner dropped the mast and put a small dent and slight bend in the mast. The mast is no longer available and a replacement would cost appx 3000 so repair is the way to go.

My idea;
about 1 meter long
sleeve the mast with a ud glass/carbon, epoxy, vacuumed sleeve
layup would be
600gm ud glass
3x 280 bd carbon
600gm ud glass

This would be formed from a mold formed inside the mast and the vacuum molded.

'then it would be epoxied and riveted inside the mast.

Doe this sound like it would work?

A "small" dent shouldn't be that much of an issue.

Where is the dent and what are the dimensions?

How do you plan to fix the bend?

Photos would be really helpful.
