S2 8.0 boom parts

I have a 1979 S2 8.0B and there are no markings on the mast or boom to indicate the manufacturer. On the forward end of the boom there is part I would like to replace. I'm not sure what it is really called, but I think it is called a gooseneck casting. One of the ears that holds the tack pin is busted off. Does anyone have any idea who the OEM was or where I can get a replacement?? Thanks.

This lead might help you. I believe the boom and mast sere made by Kenion Spars, they don't make the rigging anymore. The referral article on the website I've pasted should give you a good start to finding the manufacturer who now supplies the hardware.

This won't help you but my gooseneck was corroded and hanging by a thread. After haul out I took it out from the boom and gave it to friend who replicated it beautifully out of stainless for a case of beer!

Both RigRite and Dwyer are a good source for the gooseneck casting.
All the best,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.

That sounds familiar

I also have the exact same problem on my boom. I was planning on machining my own replacement, but if you find a cheap fix, please let me know, thanks.
