Subject: Need Mast/boom bronze connection
In reply to: Jake 's message, "Aluminum Mast" on - Thursday - 01/ 8/09 - 9:36pm

The bronze hardware that connects the boom to the MAin mast on my M31 is very cracked. IT's toast. I'm in need of a replacement part, if anyone has something like this.

Hello Lyle,
I recently had a mast step cast in bronze. I recommend you call a casting shop and find out what they charge for a bronze casting. Usually you pay only for the bronze by weight (kilo). You need to take them the gooseneck, disassembled for sand casting. It winds up being relatively low cost, although some shops wait until they have several castings to make before they melt the bronze and pour, so it sometimes takes several weeks.

Where did you have your casting done again?

My mizzen goosneck fitting is nearly worn out. It doesn't take much abuse, so I've been nursing it along. But I really should get it done.

Are your masts up yet? Is your fitting in good enough shape to make a plug? Maybe we could have plugs of main and mizzen made?

I probably have a mizzen gooseneck from an M-31 if you want to buy used.

Fitting is called a gooseneck. There is one for the main and one for the mizzen. If you send me photos of what you are looking to replace I probably have it in my box of bronze parts from an M-31 if you don't mind used parts. These are factory M-31 taken from a wreck and in 95% condition. Let me know at SkiprJohn@aol.com
Before I quote a price I'd like to know if I have what you need. The price will be cheap.

I have replaced my M31 masts and booms with aluminum. I have all the hardware from the wood spars. I also have mizzen, mizzen boom, and main boom. The main mast broke. Sorry I was late in reading you post. 231-889-4546. Northwest lower Michigan.
