    I read somewhere that a mast for a Junk Rigged sailboat

    made of a tree would be much stronger than from metal.

    It is true that I have rarely seen a tree broken in half,

    usually it is the roots that give away.  Then to be on the safe

    side, I suppose that it would be quite easy to change

    from a metal mast to a tree mast on any junk rigged sailboats ?
