Rob, It is almost impossible to find original parts for boats almost forty years old. I would recommend that you simply have a good machine shop make up what you need. A mast step or shoe is a simple matter. If you aren't sure where to start, contact a local rigger or simply take the mast to the machinist and explain what you are trying to accomplish. I doubt that you are going to have much success finding original parts.

There should be lot's of examples to follow.

Rofl ... he didn't get "hijacked." Fortune City doesn't seem to like hot-linking images though
