Details

Gooseneck/compression strut unit for use with any round mast tube and suitable for use with M, 10R and similar size boats. The metal body of the gooseneck fits snugly into the track of the mast and ensures a secure and perfectly aligned fit for this key item of the boat's rig.

When the compression strut bends

Used correctly the compression strut will be subject only to a compression load and not any bending load. So, it will not bend. If you find the compression strut is becoming bent in use it will be because the screw holding the strut end fitting to the gooseneck body is too tight. Not only does this bend the compression strut but it also places the boom end fitting under a load it was not designed to take and it will be likely to break. Ensure the screw attaching the strut toi the gooseneck body is correctly adjusted.

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

Kicking strap is the 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.
