I've read a trick (but not tried it) wherein you take a block of wood 
that's close to what you want, but not just-right yet.  Affix coarse 
sandpaper to the mast where you are going to put the block, then 
"sand," by sliding the block back and forth on the paper.  The curve 
should come out just right.
