'69 v17 gooseneck

Post by technicalman » Tue May 29, 2007 6:44 am

I was sailing my v17 just outside of ventura harbor about 3 weeks ago when my mast came down. The Port shroud turnbuckle ibolt snapped due to old age. It had a crack i couldn't see. Also punched a nice hole in the roof of my cabin where the mast was attached and snapped my gooseneck in half.

I've been able to find sources and repairs for everything except the gooseneck. Does anyone know where i might find a gooseneck for this old boat? I'm not necessarily looking for an original, just something I can fashion to get back out on the water.

Thanks All!
