The mains'l tack
shackle attaches through the included gooseneck
clip. The vertical pin attaches the clip to the mast bracket using a reinforced stainless steel sleeve.
This is a must have retrofit for early Capri 22's originally supplied with a sliding gooseneck
. This assembly will retrofit the rig to the fixed gooseneck
arrangement used on the Capri 22 MkII. By eliminating the slide and fixing the gooseneck
in place, it provides for proper use of a cunningham and reefing. The top of the mast bracket is mounted 19" above the bottom of the mast base.
The original extruded aluminum fixed mast bracket for the Capri 25 mast is no longer available. The holes in the stainless bracket are not the same hole pattern as those in the original extruded bracket. The shape of the stainless mast bracket may need to be flattened somewhat in a vise to match the radius of the Capri 25 mast.
