Unhappy Lost mast fitting

While in transit the screws holding my lower mast fitting that mates with the mast step on deck was lost. I have a 1969 Pearson 24 and apparently there were only a couple hundred at the most made. Is there any chance anyone on this site owns one and would have any helpful information (pictures, etc.) that would help me have another one made? Thanks in advance for any help or direction. s/v Spokojny

Re: Lost mast fitting

Try
DwyerMast.com

USSpars.com

RigRite.com

BallengerSpars.com

Sparcraft-us.com

At Dwyer Mast I was able to find the exact mast step and mast head for my 1969 Chrysler.

They have a page that shows the actual size and measurements of many different standard mast sizes shapes and configurations with all the accompanying hardware. They had the exact match to my mast. I only needed a new step and mast head but they have everything I would need to completely rebuild the entire mast and boom exactly like the original.

Make a tracing of the exact configuration of the bottom end of your mast with exact inside and outside measurements. If you can find the same mast size and configuration they should have the base.

Re: Lost mast fitting

One thing that occurs to me, is that most masts, particularly ones on boats smaller than 30 feet, where designed so that the end of the extruded aluminum mast fits directly over a fitted shoe (step) that is mounted directly on the deck and is designed to slip inside of the end of the mast.

If you had another piece attached to the end of the mast, you may have had a mast hinge that was an add-on to the original Factory setup.

I am assuming that your mast is an extruded aluminum mast.
