The whole is always worth less than the sum of the parts. It has $200 spreaders on the mast. I'd offer $400 for the $700 trailer, but only if he takes the Snipe off of it. :lol: Nov-04-16 05:45:01

Now that I'm home I can update. I took off the bottom plug and installed the aluminum collar easily. Of course now I have a slightly mangled top plug, but at least the top mast isn't telescoping anymore. Thanks for the help! Aug-15-16 17:32:01
