Hardware questions

Hi,

I finally got to sort thru everything that came with my new-to-me-freebie Nomad 14
Some things I did not recognize, so I have no idea what they are. One is in the attached pic named 'Photo1'. This metal thingie is on both the mast and the boom, and I have no idea what it is or what it does

I did find that I am missing the gooseneck for the boom. Attached is the end of the boom (Photo 2) as well as the slot in the mast for where the sail goes (Photo 3) - anyway to tell what gooseneck would fit or do I need to measure? If measuring - what and how?

Lastly I am missing the bolt/pin to step the mast. Attached is a pic of the end of the mast (Photo 4). What do I need for this and where can I get one? Will a regular bolt that is the size for the hole work? My mast step plate looks like the last pic (mast_plate)

Thanks!!

Re: Hardware questions

Some quick comments. Photo1 looks to be a (crude jam) cleat for holding a line like an outhaul. I'm guessing Photo2 shows the end of boom where the main sheet would attach. A bolt and nut would work for the mast support, but a clevis pin would probably be a better choice. Most sailing hardware vendors carry them in a variety of diameters and lengths. You do want stainless either way so the clevis pin is likely to be cheaper.

Re: Hardware questions

you have the mast plate or tabernacle

the v shaped items are V jam cleats to hold the line tight. the pic shows how the cleat works

you can use a bolt with a nut for the pin in the tabernacle

you can buy a goose neck fitting from marine supplier

Re: Hardware questions

I thought Photo2 was showing the end of the boom that connects to the gooseneck? And I would need something like this pic as the gooseneck? Or am I completely confused here?

Re: Hardware questions

Picture 1: That is a tabernacle. It normally would be bolted permanently to the deck with the 4 holes in the corners. Its serves as a hinge to tilt the mast into place and as a part of the mast step when the mast is up. A long bolt passes through the two slots and through the two holes in the bottom fitting of the mast. There should be large fender washers under the head of the bolt, and ideally there should not be any of the threads against the aluminum bottom of the mast fitting.
Picture 2: As others have said, its a jamb cleat and they work quite well with the proper line.

Picture 3: Overbored correctly noted that you need to buy a gooseneck assembly since that is only part of the gooseneck. The type of gooseneck that Overbored shows goes together this way:
Gooseneck Assembly_001

But because the piece that leaves the boom is male and not female, the type of end fitting that you show will not work with the fitting that Overbored or my sketch shows. Instead you will need to buy a toggle like a K-9267 or Sch 45-S0404 seen here Gooseneck Toggles and a slide like the PP-MSA seen here Pearson Small Boom Gooseneck Parts

Picture 4 is the groove that the mainsail feeds into. I assume that the solid cleats are for the main and jib halyards and the jamb cleats are for the spin pole lift and pin halyard.

Picture 5. is the base of mast fitting, see 1 for explanation.

Re: Hardware questions

Jeff I think he has the Surfglass nomad 14 not the vanguard nomad which is 17'. the v jam cleats are likely for the down haul and the outhaul. typical one uses by Surfglass same as used on the Prindle. might be the same gooseneck. could try Murrays sports for parts the one for the hobie should fit

I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! Spectacularly great call. Those is exactly what he needs.
