pics...bud


you need to learn the basic terms so people on here know what you are talking about exactly

if I were to guess what you are trying to say

connectors are turnbuckles or toggles
aluminum mount tang or strap

I beleive on your other thread you just purchased a dinghy...if so its likely you dont have turnbuckles but adjustable tangs or extenders that have many holes in them that you adjust by moving the pins up or down... what the wires are attached are called terminals or swaged eyes or ends...

anyways a pic would help us understanding what your next course of action is

good luck

cheers

I have a Sirocco 15' and mast step/tabernacle is what I was after.

I do have the adjusters with many holes but I would not mind switching to turnbuckles, is there a specific style I should use?

My wire is ~400 lb working load limit 7x7 1/8"
on dinghies its much faster and easier to rig with the extender plates...clip and go...

have you found a new mast step, tabernacle? if not you can probably have one made

cheers

your best bet is going to be either ebay for a similar looking part if not the original(but old)

or my preferred which is to have a new one made

you can go stainless and save some money...just grease up the joints...tef gel etc...

so thats the only part that broke? I thought one side let go and then this broke the mount...

im still confused on that

x2 on the above if original just go new all around and save yourself the pain of having this happen again..plus on a boat that size you can probably do it for around $100

I wouldnt go turnbuckles but thats just my preferrence...on a boat this size

just have it made...you have the old peice...however I would go stainless because the old aluminum peice was probably hardened and anodized and thats going to be way expensive to replicate

so go 304 or 316 stainless replicate part and be on your way again either that or take your time and look for a used peice on ebay...

cheers
