I agree with Scottyt & JRPollard. My '73 Morgan has a similar boom end cap that allows the boom to rotate as a reefing system. It's inefficient and I never use it, but it was an innovation at the time. I'd cut off the broken piece and rotate the end cap 180 degrees for the topping lift and add the bails for the main sheet as others have suggested. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
