Mast/Boom Sections

We are trying to order a new boom end and goose neck toggle and are wanting to confirm the boom and mast sections used on the Bahia 46. We believe the mast section is the Z-Spar Z1001 and the boom is the Z690. Can anybody confirm this, having been through this exercise before?

Cheers
Lisa

Re: Mast/Boom Sections

Our Bahia is a 2005, ex charter and this is what our gooseneck looked like. Wear on the bottom, the cross pin wandering up and aft and (not in the picture) bent the sail shackle pin.

Assuming you have original equipment, it is a ZSpar. We replaced the entire fitting, all three pieces through US Spars in Florida - (386)462-3760 for around $700 last summer. The pieces you need are:
- Gooseneck; Z1001
- Inboard Boom End; CL Z690
- They will need to custom weld a sail shackle pin

The change out is simple, but you will need to mark, drill and tap the 12 screw holes in the boom cap. The project can easily be completed on a nice afternoon.

US Spars will happily give you the drill and tap size and new screws and answer any questions you might have. They were great to work with.

Re: Mast/Boom Sections

Awesome. Thanks for that Gaelen

It is interesting to note that you have a much larger gap above the gooseneck toggle fitting or is that just because of the wear? Ours, has been fitted upside down, either by a previous owner or maybe even at the factory.

Re: Mast/Boom Sections

The gap is from the wear through the bottom arm on the mast bracket. It also disintegrated the washer.

I assume a previous owner inverted it. Not something I could see at the factory installation. I see your cross bolt is wandering as well.

Re: Mast/Boom Sections

I know I'm dragging an old thread up but we've recently become the proud new owners of a Bahia 46 and this is a pic of the gooseneck on our Bahia.

No wear apparent but it is also mounted upside down, the same as Kiwikat's. So that's 2 mounted upside down and 1 the right way up. Or as it's 2:1 it might be the other way round

Re: Mast/Boom Sections

You can clearly see on the mast schematic the orientation of the neck :-)

I have also included the boom schematic for completeness.

Hope this helps.

Ah, yes (sorry for length of time to reply).

So my gooseneck is upside down, same as kiwikat's. I wonder why? And the consequences of it being upside down? Hmm, will have to investigate.
