I finally found out some things about the Sarabi mast issue. Some things. Offshore Spars got the new mast job. http://www.offshorespars.com/news/hughes-56-sarabi/
I guess Ted van Dusen didn’t get the job. I see that it was the first unstayed aerorig for them. Ted has designed and built dozens or maybe hundreds of unstayed masts. http://www.composite-eng.com/ And the SoCal insurance company picked local M & M to design the replacement mast.
