Mast Gate for Cape Dory

I am trying to find a mast gate for my cape dory typhoon (I think I have the right name here. I am referring to the gizmo that covers the sailfeed opening in the mast slot, so that the slugs can slide past it. It is usually a hinged cover that can be pinned in place.) The mast has been drilled to attach one, so I would think one used to be on there, but I have not found it. I contacted the original manufacturer of the spar (Spartan, now owned by Rig-Rite) and they said that this was not standard, and therefore must have been either custom made or taken from another mast section. Does anyone have any idea where I might find a selection of such things? Or where I might get one made for me?

They are easy to make out of a piece of aluminum or S.S. There should be something at West Marine that you can adapt. Racelite used to make one that was extremely common.

Good luck.

Try posting your question on the Cape Dory website message board. You should get an answer there, or at least plenty of advice. The URL is www.capedory.org and then go to the message board.
Good luck,
