Busted Pole Casting

Busted the end of our downwind pole today. Not even sure of how I did it. But busted it is.

Now I need to fix it.

The pole came with the boat and I don't know manufacturer.

Any suggestions please?

Re: Busted Pole Casting

Pull the end and measure the diameter of the part of the casting that goes into the pole. Give Forespar, among others, a call to see if they have a replacement. It looks like there is an adapter to allow a smaller pole end than the aluminum extrusion ID.
