New owner here, just curious (Since I have not yet rigged sails), 1974 C22, the mast has a slot (of course) and a wide area to put in the gooseneck and MS slugs/glides. When raising the sail, what keeps them from falling out as the sail goes up (since the gooseneck and such is below this wide area)?
I am just reading and curious...

The slides can be held in the slot when raising the sail by using mast gates made from metal carpet edging or other material. See http://www.catalina22.org/techtips/mastgate.htm for details.

If you are going to trailer your boat a lot and end up taking your mainsail off the boat frequently you may want to purchase a "Track Stop". They are sold by West Marine for less than $10. They can be found on page 1062 of the 2004 West Marine Master Catalog. Model # 108332. I have been using them for years and they work very well. I also have one in the track below the gooseneck so that I can easily adjust the boom heigth when the sail is not up.
