Ocarina II is on a distinguished road
hi Chris, my boat had a clunky old steel box shaped multi pin connector inside the mast foot. There is an oval shaped access plate on the side to facillitate connection. It was prone to corrosion and I never liked it. When I re-wired the mast I got a real nice R-V trailer plug from Princess Auto. It is a cylindrical capsule design for heavy wiring and is made from glass reinforced plastic. The female end, which is attached to the boat has an excellent spring load cap that seals it when the mast is unstepped. I looked at what the marine suppliers had and nothing else even came close.
