on rec.windsurfing and answer the question about cutting a carbon mast.
1) Place tape around the area to be cut.
2) Cut through the tape to the mast and continue until severed.
3) To prevent defraying of the carbon fiber, light with a household match
and twist together until no fibers are showing and only a gooey mess
remains. (Good luck!)

Always be true to the wind,
(Gear info in prgress, I'm buying like a chipmunk storing for winter, will be
completed in mid-June)
