Mast extrusion replacement for the Omega 14. Replacement section allows for transfer of most existing hardware. New and improved masthead with sheaves included as an upgrade to the original tube style masthead. Mast shape allows for use of factory original mast foot assembly and mast step, so your old assembly can be transferred or you can add one to your order by clicking on the item in the "May we also suggest" section below.
The kit also includes a machine screw with nylock nut to be used in lieu of the sheet metal screws originally used in the lower hole of the upper shroud tangs
. This allows you to through bolt the tangs when you transfer over your hardware, making for a much stronger installation.

4) Most of the original mast hardware was installed with self tapping sheet metal screws when assembled at the factory. You can reuse these fasteners to transfer over your hardware. Some have reported that previous owners have replaced the self tapping screws with pop rivets. If that is the case, you will need to drill out the pop rivets and buy new fasteners for transferring over the hardware.
5) Due to differences in mastheads, you may need to reposition the main halyard lock so that the mains'l ends up in the same location. Measure the distance down from the masthead to the halyard shackle on your old rig with the lock in place and position the lock on the new mast such that the halyard shackle is the same distance down from the new masthead.
