I'll move this to Gear and Maintenance..

Posting some pictures will be helpful, difficult to imagine what fittings are there otherwise.

Just type out the URL with DOT instead of "." and we can sort it out.

Looks like you're missing another piece of channel that fits INSIDE the one in the hull, that would be hinged on that pin at the back end. What's odd is I don't see any holes in the block at the foot of the mast to pin it to the missing channel piece... Anyhow the two channel pieces would make a hinge that allows you to lean the mast back to lower it, and vice versa.

I've inserted the real link into your post so maybe someone's got more specific information. Good luck. A metal fabricator should be able to help out, or try googling "Rig Rite" as a resource.

Thanks. ....If we could determine how it was attached to the mast, we'd have far less of a problem :(
Maybe stop blocks in front and behind the mast foot.. probably adjustable within that inner channel..

Looks like your friendly local metal shop (or highschool?) is your next stop..

Yes, I agree you could make that work.. You might want some side shims to keep the mast centered in the channel, but it just means you'll have less stability raising and lowering the mast - but it's a small mast.;)
