26S Mast base hinge upgrade

Does anyone have a picture of the mast base hinge upgrade? I purchased the two plates for BWY but it seems there is a gap at the bottom of the mast between the mast and the plate. This is due to the bolt on the new hinge holding the mast about 1/4" -3/8" off the hinge plate. Here is a pic I took of it with the plate loosely attach and the mast attached to bow for trailering. You can see the gap in the photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

BWY is always very helpful. I'm sure they would walk you thru installing the plate you bought from them. Cell them. Send them the pic and describe the problem
