Mast foot/mount

Postby Fra1987 » Tue Aug 06, 2019 8:42 pm

Hi

Looking for a mast foot/mount.

Does anyone have one for sale? Or perhaps knows where I'll get one?

Bought *pendragon* the other week but I was unable to put the mast up when I got it to France!

Thanks

Search for Mast heel on this forum, there was a post by an owner who had a spare to sell Nov 2018.

Hi, there are numerous postings on this problem, one entitled another broken mast heel! states the owner obtained a solid block of alumininum and made one from scratch. Another option would be to make a mould from wood and get a local foundry to cast one for you though a posting from another owner who tried this says they were quoted £200-£300.
You may get a better quote if you shop around.
I seem to recall one post where an owner had been quoted a more attractive price for producing a run of units that he could sell to other Prelude owners, judging from the number of snapped mast heels he could probably have made a tidy profit.

Regards, Alistair.
