    I had an unfortunate situation occur this past sailing season where the boom came out of the mast track. The pin in the car that slides in the track that connects to the boom no longer has spring tension and the stopper that is at the base of the track to prevent this car from completely sliding off the track and swinging around like a projectile in heavy winds is missing.

    I do not know the name of these two parts and am not sure where I could or should go to replace them.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would try and find out the make of the mast and boom then go to rig right's web site and try and match it up there.
    Good luck.

    I do believe that short track and pin is a Merriman fitting. They have been out of business for years. When I acquired my H33 I removed the track and had a stainless shop make up a fixed gooseneck. Much stronger and simpler. I no longer own the boat and do not have any pics to send.
