Hey James,

Regarding bronze gooseneck pieces to an aluminum mast, check out how that's been handled on Tranquila, here:

http://www.marineryachts.com/owners/Tranquila/index.html.

The photo (second from top) is a shot of the boat owner basking and the boat on port tack, but if you look to the right, you'll see that a bronze gooseneck has been fitted to a spiffy looking aluminum mizzen mast. No idea what the gasket is...maybe just paint?

I am going to for sure keep my wood booms. I am going to meet with the rigger next week to get a quote on the work to hopefully use most of my current standing rigging on my main for the new aluminum main. I have done lots of other upgrades my self this one I am going to get some help from a pro.
