What is a mast gate?
Did you buy it or fabricate?
What does it look like?
I bought it from CatalinaDirect.
This one is made specifically for Catalina 25 and 250, although the length of the rod needs to be customized for each boat with a grinder. The rod fills the slot up so the slugs do not fall out. But instead of stopping the slugs like a sail stop, they fall past the slot down to the boom.
This arrangement is not particularly good for trailer sailors because removing the gate before/after every sail is a bit of a pain. But for those who remove their sails seasonally, it's no problem.
