Boom to mast bracket?

I'm looking to replace this boom to mast bracket for a '79 Morgan. Does anyone have a source or a website for a part like this? Thanks.

The part you're looking for is called a "Gooseneck". Use the term gooseneck fitting for your search. Depending upon your location, there are used sailboat part supply outlets. Tell us where you are and someone here might be able to lead you to a source.

I'm in Chicago, and thanks for giving me the correct name. It should make searching a lot easier!

Three places that might be sources for an online search could be Bacon & Associates in Annapolis, Sailorman's in Ft. Lauderdale and Sailor's Exchange in St. Augustine.

Also, you might want to consider taking your existing piece to a machine shop. You're basically looking for a universal joint. Don't hesitate to "marry" a similar part from another vessel to your mast and boom.

Probably any used marine parts place can fix you up. Any gooseneck for that size boat will do. Can always make a mast attachment for it.
