Mast retaining pin 3Thu 13 Jan 2022 00:36:28
Kingfisher Kingfisher Mon 03 Jan 2022 10:46:09 We have an original mast and the retaining pin was missing when we got the boat. We are currently using an M6 bolt but that's far from an ideal solution, so we're looking for a suitable replacement pin. The issue is it needs a very shallow head in order to go underneath the lip on the mast foot. It's hard to find a clevis pin that is long enough, can anyone tell me what they're using for a pin and where we might be able to source one?
