Thanks to Colin Mason for suggesting a neat way of adding an eye to the forward end of the boom for the Cunningham control line.

Axis alignment

The design of the gooseneck body ensures it is 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, for the versions WITHOUT mast ram, it is 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 gooseneck/kicking strap units without mast ram will also fit the 12 mm 'groovy' mast section marketed by Cap Maquettes in France and Cornwall Model Boats in the UK.
