If money and time is NOT an issue, you might consider Port Townsend Foundry: http://www.porttownsendfoundry.com/

We had them make us a new outhaul cart and a cranse iron last year. They were expensive and on island time, but they make really great stuff. Good luck!

[> Gooseneck for Mariner 40 -- Mike Anthony, - Thursday - 02/22/07 - 7:45am

Thanks for the suggestion, I guess my biggest question is the size and measurments. I dont have one to compare it against.

Thanks Again

Hi Mike and Paula --

I can take digital photos of the gooseneck on Ta' Ata Ori and make measurements, if that would help. She's buttoned up for the winter right now, but I'll be taking the covers off soon. Let me know. Glad to do it.

Hope your winter went well. I spent some time in January and February sailing a 135-foot brigantine (SSV Robert C. Seamans http://www.sea.edu )around the South Pacific. Quite a hoot and it makes sail handling on my boat seem like child's play.

You come to the rescue again, if you could get some close ups and measurments I would be indebted for sure. I have the mizzen, only missing the Main. I looked at the website for the Brig, it looked like a fantastic time. What a boat, did you get to handle the rigging or steer? Did you sail her to the South Pacfic or fly there and pick her up in the South Seas?? Must have been one heck of a time, I bet it is humbling to sail on that big of a ship.

Again, thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

Mike and Paula
