I had the same problem recently – except it was the 6″ wire that snapped, between kicker and the mast fitting. The best part was that the entire assembly shot skywards, then arced gracefully into the bay. and sank without trace. Quite a lot on energy bound up in that thing. Glad noone was in the way! Glad I had some strong rope handy to make a temporary kicker, too.
