Rigid Boomvang mast and boom fitting

I was hoping someone might have had this same scenario and could help. I have purchased a rigid boomvang (spinlock VX1350) and my boat, a C&C 34 does not have a mast or boom fitting in place and I do not know where I could purchase such. To this point my only option would be to have a custom fitting manufactired for both the mast fitting and teh boom fitting which would be very $$$. Any suggestions on where i could find a fitting product would much appreciated.

thank you in advance.
- Jake

Yes I just installed a Garhauer and it came with brackets to fit the mast and boom. When you order you send them a profile of your mast and boom and they make the brackets to fit. All I had to do was drill and rivet.

Thank you Faster and Mark SF. Was it expensive? So, you needed to take a profile of the boom, did you for the base of the mast too?

Templates of the aft part of mast and the underside of boom. A simple way of doing this is to take a piece of soldering wire and bend it around the aft part of mast, then trace the shape onto a piece of paper. Repeat the process on the underside of boom.

You'll also need to tell them what size pins are on the ends of the vang so that the attachment points can be made to match.

Whisker pole

ANybody know where you can find a telescoping whisker pole for less than a fortune. I have a C&C 34 and I am getting killed on the downwind legs of the Wednesday night club racing.

thank you,
