R.A.F. K-type Dinghy Mast

Stores ref. 27C/2054. The mast consists of seven light alloy metal tubes which telescope to a minimum length of 38cm. When extended, the overall length is approx. 1.69m. Once erected, the sections remain in their extended positions by the provision of internal spring plungers. The mast cannot be collapsed unless these plungers are depressed. The upper end of the mast is fitted with a flange to which three stabalizing guy lines can be fitted. The lower end is plugged and fits into the recess provided for it on the thwart. Shows use and wear and lacks the small plungers on 2 sections although this does not matter for display purposes. Otherwise in good overall condition. Stock code M17251.
