I've just gotten a 1970 Newport 27 but on my inspection, I find one of the spreader brackets (where it attaches to the mast) is broken. It's about 6 x 3.5" with a 1-3/4" ID flange where the spreader attaches.
Any idea where I might find one? Surely there are boat salvage yards just like auto yards aren't there where one can find these? I've been searching all night but not sure where else to go.
