Identify Griffon mast/mast pin

Post by JamesHolland » Mon Jul 09, 2018 8:41 pm

Can anyone identify this mast? unfortunately I only have this pic of the base. There is a 'locating pin' which is missing, its around 50mm long and something like 10mm diameter, I am struggling to find a replacement, it is a straight pin with a split pin at each end, a standard clevis pin won't fit because the shoulder will foul on the way in, does it have a special name?

Most likely to be a Kemp mast. Kemp were taken over by Selden. You could look at their parts catalogue.

However the easiest route would be to contact XW Rigging (http://www.xwrigging.com/) as they worked at Westerly to make all the rigging and still have all the old records. They are Selden agents, so should be able to get the bolt required very quickly.
