Made from Canadian Douglas Fir to fit all Lugger models. Douglas Fir is not as light in colour as Spruce, it’s a little heavier than Spruce, takes screw fittings better than Spruce and is less prone to having rotten ends to the mast, especially the bottom end that fits into the socket. It has lovely long grain and takes varnish well.
We recommend using a whipped collar on the mast in preference to leather wedges. This gives a really snug fit for the unstayed mast.
