Very informative, nice write up. I have been curious about stabilizing options, a steadying sail was a consideration. I don't believe my Willard has the structural reinforcement to mount a functioning mast, as it sits on the cabin roof. I am resigned to a "decorative" mast so I can use the boom for pulling my shrimp pots and to hang my rain cover over the cockpit. My current mast is wood, irregularly shaped, and made out of four pieces "boxed" together, which required sanding the "box" to a sail mast shape for about 18" to attach the radar mount.
