Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Sliding Goose Neck Re: Re: Sliding Goose Neck


Swiebertje Thanks for your prompt reply i think i understand what you are saying : i am going to try and get a strip of SS and then welt a nut on the back so the wing bolt goes through the hole and then through a hole into the metal but it will tighten on the nut and pull it tight against the groove like a big washer , i may even end up putting abit of rubber innertube on one side of the metal plate thing so that is will not damage the mast and it will then grip better than metal on metal , i shall let you know how i get on and maybee post some pictures so that if any one elce is unfortunate enough to buy a boat with this missing or too loose the bolt then they could maybee make a new one with allot less hastle then i have had ❗

Once again thanks for your prompt reply .Dom
