Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.

your best bet is going to be either ebay for a similar looking part if not the original(but old)

or my preferred which is to have a new one made

you can go stainless and save some money...just grease up the joints...tef gel etc...

so thats the only part that broke? I thought one side let go and then this broke the mount...

im still confused on that

x2 on the above if original just go new all around and save yourself the pain of having this happen again..plus on a boat that size you can probably do it for around $100

I wouldnt go turnbuckles but thats just my preferrence...on a boat this size

Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.

I thought the connector broke because when I looked at it while I was fishing the mast out of the water the connector was dis connected but my sail buddy said he disconnected it to try to help me out, I did not get a good look at what was broken until today.

To be honest it all happened kind of quick, one second there was a noise, the next the mast is in the water.

I will replace the connectors but they all seem to be in good shape so does my theory of loose rigging plus the force of a tack in 15-20 mph winds seem plausible to break this? I did not sheet in when I switched, just kinda let it zoom from one side to the other.

Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.

I have found what I believe to be a replacement.

https://www.dwyermast.com/items.asp?...acles+%26+Pins

DH2173, the mast it goes to is 0.25 inches shorter but the same width, the holes are off but I guess I will just drill some new holes.

My boat has a wooden beam coated in fiberglass that runs atop the cab so it should be fairly simple.

This company sells pins as well, right now I am just using a bolt.

Does anyone know of any other company that sells hardware that I might find a closer match on the holes?

Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.

Is it aluminum or stainless steel? If aluminum a piece could easily be cut from a piece of rectangular tubing. If stainless it can be welded up from flat bar.

Re: Had an oopsie, need the name of a part.

just have it made...you have the old peice...however I would go stainless because the old aluminum peice was probably hardened and anodized and thats going to be way expensive to replicate

so go 304 or 316 stainless replicate part and be on your way again either that or take your time and look for a used peice on ebay...

cheers
