Goosenecks/Vangs

SAILSetc goosenecks - simply designed better - an overview

WHAT IS AVAILABLE?

We have gooseneck/kicking strap units that are developed and adapted for almost every conceivable application but we are always interested to hear of applications that we do not yet cater for. All the units we make are listed in this section. However, we are usually working on new designs and we are always happy to consider other requirements.

HOW TO CHOOSE?

If you need guidance on what is most appropriate for any of the international classes, please go to the 'mast fittings' section (look under 'fittings') for the specific class you are interested in.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR?

The headline product decription for each gooseneck gives guidance to its applicability:

  • BEARING TYPE (standard or ball raced)
  • MAST TYPE (IOM, any round mast, stated diameter, alloy GROOVY or carbon GROOVY)
  • BOAT SIZE (micro, small, medium or large)

SPARES?

Most of the commonly required spare parts are listed under the 'spares' section.

MORE OPTIONS?

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 0-GNK-IOM. For custom goosenecks for larger classes go to product page 0-GNK-M-10R. They are at the top of the list below.

OFFSET AXIS GOOSENECKS?

If you want to experiment with offsetting the axis of the gooseneck relative to the mast axis, it is straightforward to do on many SAILSetc goosenecks using a small packer piece between the gooseneck body and mast. 1 mm of packing is equivalent to about 1 degree of offset. Deck patch material is about 0.1 mm thick. Just take the following into account.

  • Metal body – either for round mast or GROOVY mast. The ones for round mast can easily be offset.
  • Injection moulded body - either for round mast or GROOVY mast. Each can be easily offset.
  • Printed body – either with or without a mast ram. Those without can be easily offset. If you have a specific offset in mind we can provide custom designs.

SOME HISTORY

SAILSetc was the first to exploit the possibilities of using aluminium extrusion for gooseneck bodies in the early 1980s. The benefits?:

  • perfect alignment of the gooseneck with the mast - every time
  • sail rotates freely - mainsail has the same twist on each gybe
  • neat design
  • versatile component parts
  • easy to maintain in top condition
  • economical production

Since our first gooseneck design, many innovations have been incorporated into the design of SAILSetc goosenecks - laser cut stainless steel parts, injection moulded parts, carbon moulded parts, self locking kicking straps, 3D printed parts, mast ram included, etc. Generally these features make the units simple to fit, simple to use, durable and easy to maintain. Minimising corrosion has been an important goal and moving to injection moulded plastic gooseneck bodies and other parts has been a major step forward in this respect.
