Our club L2 blew over and mast has cleanly broken just above the shroud bolt.

We can claim on the insurance for it.

Does anyone know who can supply one?

Looks like a Selden/Proctor section to me.

[Later] but after looking at their website, one they don't make any more.

Assuming you have a new for old policy with one of the dinghy specialists I would speak to them as for the price of a new mast (if you could find one) you could get another Laser 2 complete with mast

The original 2 piece masts are no longer available. Before the class assoc disappeared some com members helped develop a replacement 1 piece mast which should be available. Selden I believe.

Edit:
   If you do get a new mast or boat the old mast fittings, particularly the cast pieces and top section will be wanted by somebody I reckon.

Update, we found someone local to make a sleeve for the top of the mast to join the broken short top section to the lower part. All went fine, the top mast fitted back in after a bit of filing (this is due to the welding distorting the mast section a little, which was my main worry). I designed it with a slanted end to spread the load over as big an area as possible.

At 160 it was by far the cheapest option, a new mast from Selden was about 800 inc vat and that's just the plain tube, nothing else. I could have got another mast but it would have come with a free boat that I would have had to chop up and sneak into the recycling.

We'll see how it goes this year.

Welding's a bit agricultural but looks strong and hopefully no one will be inspecting the top of the mast that much:)
