My point is that there are already curved mast foils available.

and Cariffino's first post was....

i don't know that either mfg copied the other., if that was the implication.
this concept has been used in ship building for several years. i'm not an engineer so i won't bother explaining the concept but my guess is that a straight shaft is much easier to make than a curved shaft.

The water bubbles created on the surface from turbulence, will travel down
a shaft if it's not raked forward a bit, ( it's called Ventilation ).

Placing fins on the shaft will also stop the air from following it, but that
takes more drag to accomplish the same as just raking it forward a bit.

And Nice back-track ya did there, with that second question !

looks sleek, although would there be a lot of drag around the mast -> fuselage join? looks quite wide.

the main challenge to reduce drag is to make the mast as thin as possible and combine that with a profile that has minimal drag with an aoa of 0°. "thin as possible" means that you need enough stiffness otherwise the board will wobble. i don't think that triumphant arch will make any noticable difference to a straight mast. what might be a good idea is to make the mast wider/thicker closer to the board. this way you add stiffness in an area that is in fact above the water most of the time.
