Fame has wooden masts its a schooner. I did not know 105's came with wood masts as an option, I would have thoughrt given their predilection for being bumper boats thats a bit risky :-). Fame does have a carbon headsdail on forward mast though.

Woody has pics of Fame somewhere in his compendium, maybe "Around Coronados 2011" or something.

Check out these Time Wilkes photos from Classic Fleet at Chester Race Week 2011. I believe Ripple has the wooden mast and looks to have a more modern headsail ... http://www.timwilkes...&searchtype=all

Actually - better pics of Ripple in his 2012 Chester Race week photos. Look to be kevlar sails

Old pictures, I know for a fact that the wooden spars were removed and a J105 rig was added before the McNish Classic regatta up in Oxnard this year. I am not well versed on classic yachts but they changed the aft mast (main mast I believe is proper) to J105 rig pained brown/tan to try to keep the classic look. No longer gaff rigged and is using a J105 asym kite off the bowsprit.

Not sure how to post pics but here is a website with some shots from this year that show the new rig. I haven't been involved since Fame launched but a few good friends still are helping out with the boat. So my info is pretty solid.

Although it has been done, as a general practice, it is frowned upon as low stretch, high tech sail fabrics transmit significantly higher loads to the rig and hull of these older vessles.
