Another early Capri 25 problem. My gooseneck is shot. Catalina Direct has a replacement gooseneck but it only fits the later boats that have a single tab on the boom end extrusion. Mine has two tabs that fit over the mast pivot - that's the picture. Anyone dealt with this problem and come up with a solution? The rotation pin had nearly pulled out of the retainer.

We had the same problem. Several weeks in a row we were hammering the two tabs back into shape on the way to the start line.

I ended up taking a piece of aluminium flat stock, about 1" wide and 6 inches long, and bending it into a U-shape that fit snugly around the vertical pin and the bit of the boom it fits into, then drilled holes so the horizontal pin held the aluminium band tightly in place. It's held together for over a year now with no issues.

if you want a sketch PM me your email and I'll send one, or a photo.
