The masthead for early OEM spars are no longer available. All Omega 14's as well as the original Capri 16.5 (until hull #1050 in 2010 which was then equipped with Seldén rig) can use this retrofit masthead. Instead of incurring the expense of a whole new rig for the lack of a masthead, we have assembled this kit to retrofit a new masthead to the original spars. This kit works with an adapter and includes screws to fasten to the original spar.
• Omega 14
• Capri 16.5 before hull #1050
Height above mast: 39mm (~1-1/5")

1) To prevent galling, lubricate all stainless steel threads with a thread lubricant like the one we offer below under "May we also suggest".
2) Although the early Capri 14.2 (hulls 5448 and down) used the same mast extrusion as the Omega 14 and the Capri 16.5s, it was not supplied with a masthead. See below for the masthead sheave that was mounted in the extrusion on the Capri 14.2s in lieu of a more traditional masthead.
