plastic stud for in-mast furling
« on: April 21, 2019, 06:32:57 AM »

Shamrock is a 2001 with in-mast furling from Charleston Spar.  There is a plastic stud? that prevents the top swivel from rotating, it has seen better days.  I've contacted Catalina, they suggested trying Charleston Spar.  Didn't get any help there, think ownership has changed.  It's simple enough I could make or have it made but buying is easier.  Has anyone replaced it or have a place to buy it.  Hope the pictures show well enough, they are with the mast down and stored.

Jim Iíve never seen one before but on a long shot, try RigRite.

Or Ed can probably fab one out of Delrin if you send the old one.
