Details

Ball raced gooseneck/kicking strap unit with metal body for use with any round mast tube and suitable for 36/600, 36R, US 1M, IOM and similar small boats. The metal body of the gooseneck fits snugly onto a mast with any diameter between 8 and 14 mm and ensures a secure and perfectly aligned fit for this key item of the boat's rig.

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.

Replacement bearings - choose BF-011 from 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 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 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.

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.
