Re: Worn gooseneck

I'm having a machine shop make a bushing to insert in my gooseneck to take the slop out of it.

Re: Worn gooseneck

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: Worn gooseneck

yeah the picture looks very similar to what my Lavezzi looked like.
I have bushed mine using stainless steel as the alloy is never going to last long.
also make sure you don't have any thread on the bearing surface of the bolt as this will cut into thr bearing surface increasing the wear rate.
