So I was sailing in some higher winds and my headstay line snapped causing the mast
to fall at an angle and break the mast
mount. im somewhat new to sailing and sailboat terms but the piece that broke is attached to the bottom of the mast and it connects the mast to the hull
with a similar part and allows the mast to pivot up and down when raising the mast. im attaching a picture of the part after the incident.
My problem is that this is a Balboa
20 from the early 70s and I have no experience on hunting down parts
for sailboats. i dont know if this is going to require getting a whole new mast or getting a whole new mount replacement for the hull
side and mast side of this part. if anyone has anything they can share with me that might point me in the right direction or ease my mind, that would be great. Im really bummed out right now about this and I fear this part could be impossible to find.
any links to websites that might have one of these in stock would be great also. thanks in advance and I hope you guys can help me
