1) We use an aircraft fork at the top of the new shroud (pictured at the top left in the photo above). Clevis and cotter pins are supplied for each fork. Cut off your old shroud at the tang
. Pin the new shroud onto the tang
using the provided clevis and cotter pins. This method avoids having to remove the old tang
s which sometimes results in compromising the self tapped threads in the aluminum mast. The bottom end of each shroud is equipped with a thimble (pictured at the top right in the photo above) that inserts into the shroud adjuster on deck.
2) We build these for you to the typical length of 15' 7" pin to pin. Since we make these to a nominal length of 15' 7", we highly recommend you measure your old rigging to check for variations from this standard dimension. If you need a different length, please call our sales staff for assistance.
3) In 2012 Catalina started supplying the Capri 14.2 with Seldén masts and standing rigging. Current production Capri 14.2 (hulls 5449 and up) are now equipped with Seldén rigs. These boats require different mast fittings. If your boat has a Seldén rig, call our Technical Support at 916/843-1971.
