Mast Tang Reinforcement Project

Most 242 masts eventually have this problem: a relatively thin cross pin that connects the upper forestay swivel to the mast tang, which in turn wears its way over time through the aluminum and elongates the hole.


A solution was developed by Yury Levkovskiy of Kitsilano Yacht Club, who sails #233 Swift. The project was recently performed in Nov 2023 by Michael Clements and Colin Gilbert on #304 Too Wicked and is documented here.
