Hi, been getting boat ready for the summer season. We purchased it back in DEC 08.. a 1990 Hunter 28. 1 of my sail slides has broken near the top. About 4 or 5 down from the top. help me... How do I replace the slide? I have several spares, but there is no access slot to put the tee silde into.. Thought it would be on the mainsail track but to no avail... Any ideas?? My boom is attached to the main via a pivot mounted on the mast which is riveted in place??? I dunno.. Thanx in advance

yep yep I knew it was called something hahahaha Gooseneck,, have looked and there is no opening. I may have to get my dremel tool and make a access slot on mast and then put a pin in there as you stated.. My bro in law sails an Islander and his is behind the goosneck , but my gooseneck is riveted in place...
