Replacing boom parts

Hi,

I discovered that there is a bent in the part that attaches the boom to the mast, but do not know how to go about finding a replacement. The piece I am referring to is fixed to the boom and attaches to the car used to move the boom up and down on the mast end with a cylinder. Anyone know the name of such part?

Thanks!

Manuel

The whole assembly that connects the boom to the mast is called the gooseneck. Depending on the age of the boat and manufacturer, these were often custom made parts. That said I would like at the Dwywer Aluminum Masts <http://www.dwyermast.com/> and Kenyon Spars <http://www.rigrite.com/Spars/Kenyon_Spars/KENYON.html>

websites since they offer a very wide selection of spar hardware and made a lot of the oem equipment during the period when goosenecks were mounted on downhaul tracks.

Also check RigRite. They have all kinds of obscure mast and boom fittings for old boats.
