|The image below shows the intermediate tapered
3 sided mast, there having been four altogether, namely the original tubular
steel mast which survived until 1972, a short emergency mast used in early
1973, the tapered 3 sided mast and finally from late 1973, the telescopic
four sided mast, until the Mi Amigo's demise. Although less elegant than
it's predecessor, it proved far more suitable for service at sea, and was
far easier to erect.
