At some point during the production of the Yankee 30 the wooden spreaders were replaced by aluminum ones made by LeFiell Manufacturing in Santa Fe Springs, California. They also made the original masts and booms for Yankee. LeFiell still makes some marine parts, but I think most of their business is related to aircraft.
