Mast & boom
 
I was down in the boat yard yesterday inventorying the O'Day 25 tall rig i got & they have the mast sitting on a rack with a bunch of other masts.I located it by the base mount. Only thing is i couldn't tell which boom was mine!The mast had a mounting bracket that is a flat channel type setup that appears to be about 1" wide, 1/4-3/8 thick & about 6-8" long on the mast.Out of all the Booms there i didn't see any that would attach like that.( I didn't have a tape measure to measure any of them, i know now that its 9 feet long).So my question is does anyone have any detailed ( or any) pictures of the boom & or the bracket that attaches the boom to the mast? I'll have to go back with a tape measure & picture and find mine. The boat was there when the yardmaster was hired & it seems all the tags on the mast are worn off.Thank you

It's got to fit the mast so 1/2 must be on the mast! Match the hardware...Dale

Check out D&R marine (drmarine.com). They have pics of many O'Day 25 parts online including the gooseneck. They are a great source for O'Day owners.

If their pics don't help I can take a pic of the gooseneck on my boom when I get home tonight as I have it off the boat and in the garage for the winter.

What kind of crazy boat yard removes the mast and boom and mixes them up with other masts and booms without labeling anything?

Not a boat yard, The person in charge was power washing a boat when i was there.I couldn't find it, but i'll go back when hes not busy & we'll find it.I think the biggest problem is i could match up the gooseneck.Its probably there.

I've always left the boom on the side deck. Future thought.

Good luck finding it.
