Sorry I'm a bit slow this AM. Are you using aluminum tubing for the vertical aft support? I think I'll need a picture. The purpose of a 2x4 is when your rolling the mast back to position it into the mast foot the 2x4 has a broader surface for cushioning against the transom than a pipe would. Also it allows the addition of 2 pieces that fit into the gutter drain that keeps it from moving away.
