Ball raced - any Ø - IOM

Details

Ball raced gooseneck/kicking strap units for 11/12.7 mm or for 10/12 mm &Oslash mast tube and suitable for 36/600, 36R, US 1M, IOM and similar small boats. The plastic body of the gooseneck fits snugly onto the mast and ensures a secure and perfectly aligned fit for this key item of the boat's rig. Whereas metal or carbon gooseneck bodies increase corrosion of the mast, the plastic body of this item reduces the corrosion at this critical point and eases maintenance of the unit.

There are three versions for 11 mm Ø mast that incorporate a mast ram and headsail sheet fairlead into the gooseneck body. The mast ram position is offset 5, 15 and 25 mm respectively from one end giving (by reversing the first two of these) five different mast ram positions. Provision for a headsail sheet fairlead is also provided.

Various boom spar fittings are available.

The unit is supplied with the SAILSetc self locking design of kicking strap. Choose the 'kicking strap extended' option if you need the kicking strap close to the boom rather than close to the deck. This item is available as a replacement part - see the SPARES section of this website.

Not quite what you need?

There are too many possible variations for our goosenecks for smaller classes (IOM, 36R, 36/600 and US1M) to list them all as individual products. But you can specify a custom gooseneck from all the available options by going to product page custom gooseneck ref. 0-GNK-IOM.

Axis alignment

The design of the gooseneck bodies ensures they are aligned with the mast perfectly. If the effect of a tilted axis gooseneck is required (also known as adjustable axis gooseneck, variable axis gooseneck) then choose the versions without mast ram. It is then a simple matter to place a packer of the required thickness under one end of the gooseneck body before it is fixed to the mast tube. Use deck patch material or other self-adhesive material to achieve this. 0.9 mm thickness will tilt the axis by 1 degree. One layer of SAILSetc deck patch material will tilt the axis by 0.1 degree.

The design of the body permits a simple Cunningham attachment that permits the mainsail to rotate freely about the mast. downloadable Document

This gooseneck/kicking strap unit will also fit the 12 mm 'groovy' mast section marketed by Cap Maquettes in France and Cornwall Model Boats in the UK.

Gooseneck is the English English language term for the attachment between boom and mast. Other words used are boom pivot and boom swivel.

Kicking strap is the English English language term used for the adjustable connection between the lower end of the gooseneck and the boom. It is also known as a vang.

Formerly coded 11C (boom end fitting for SAILSetc boom) and 11D (boom end fitting for 11 mm round boom).
