Update: i have just got back from the chandlers and after much diisscusion with the people in there one of the friends of the man behind the till informed me that the hole should actually have a thread in it then a wing bolt should screw in and tighten against the back of the mast , unfortunatly the thread in my goose neck had completly worn out so i bout so slightly larger bolt to try and re tap the hole , uunfortunaly this failed but i managed to get the goose neck out at the opening in the sail track then i could put at bolt through the back and have a wing nut on the front and this now clamps against the mast and works well enough for my purposes , if any one would like a picture of how i did this please reply
