Hi guys, greetings from Romania, in Eastern Europe! I have a 1976 C22 that I bought in the US when I was a grad student, and now I am sailing on the Black Sea.

Last year, the boat was dismasted in a freak gale, and in the process I lost the mast step (luckily not the mast itself Smile ). Can any of you kind souls out there send me a clear photo and/or a diagram of the C22 mast step, marked with exact measurements, so I can fabricate it here?

In case there is a confusion, I am talking about the aluminum part in the photo here (this is not from my boat, I snatched it from the Forum, I believe it's from a C26).

Thanks a lot and happy sailing!

Welcome to the forum sipidel!
A C22 sailing the Black Sea! How cool is that?!?!?

I do not have the measurements handy but I do have another option for you! I've actually removed that aluminum piece and replaced it with a mast step hinge!!

Check out this link here and look through the photos.
About 1/3 of the way down you will see two photos, one with the original hook and one with the new hinge plate!

That set up worked very well for me!
So well, I did two boats that way!

Greetings sipidel,


I too would definitely recommend a mast hinge, but in the mean time, you're welcome to have mine for free (and whatever the shipping is to Romania). I crafted my own new hinge from stainless and won't need the hook anymore.....

@CaptainScott, Thanks for the quick reply. I studied your hinge replacement and it sounds like a good idea indeed. I will look into it.

Can you please send me some technical specs? Size of plate, gauge of steel plate and pin, etc? I will need at least approximate values to request a fabrication quote.

@Bubbles, your kind offer is greatly appreciated! Let me inquire about fabricating a stainless hinge, and if i decide I would rather have the hook, I will let you know.

Is there any way I can contact you privately, to send you a mailing address, etc.?

Sounds like a mast hinge would make hoisting the mast much easier. So wondering if there's a retail source where a mast hinge for a C22 can be purchased versus having to have one fabricated? Or if not, would like any design specs or direction on where to find. My email: b918fvc@sbcglobal.net

Appreciate any assistance..

Sure, you can always use the PM function which sends a private message
