(From Rig Rite) The NG1 Masthead for Masthead Rigs is a single casting welded into the Mast Section, easily distinguished from its larger counterpart by having only 2 Sheaves (or provisions for only 2 sheaves) side by side, on the forward side. Masthead allows for 2 Main halyards, 2 Jib halyards, and 2 internal Spinnaker* halyards (using rollers and sheaves above the Jib sheaves) for a total of up to 6 halyards.Installing a new masthead like the NG-2 would solve your problem, but could be a fairly extensive project. You'd need to cut off the old, weld on the new, then reinstall your masthead lights, antenna, etc. You may lose a little mast length in the process, and that could mean you'd need to shorten your stays and shrouds. You'd also need to carve out holes for the exit plates and get those mounted. I'm sure you've thought all this through -- just thinking out loud here.
