    ๐Ÿ“ Blackpool and Fylde Model Boat Club

    At the Northern end of Fairhaven Lake there is a quiet corner which was originally a swimming pool and is reserved for operating mainly scale model boats. From April to October, weather permitting, you will find members enjoying sailing sessions from 18:00 until sunset, (Parking is easy in the adjacent car park and free after 18:00 or on the road). Come along and have a chat and maybe have a go yourself. Membership for 2019 remains at ยฃ10 and and includes public liability insurance.

    Bowsies are easy to make. I've had DF65 ones break so I 3d print my own. I've also made them out of servo horns for other boats and one guy at our club uses buttons. Not sure how race legal they are, but since I don't race it doesn't matter to me.

    ๐Ÿ“ Mast fittings

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I'll probably try and find a two horn cleat like you suggested, though finding one I can blind screw in at two points is proving a little more difficult. Like you said, it's looking like a handmade fixture. I suspect the whole boat, including all the fixtures were hand made. The joys of buying second hand.

    Thanks, that's great, but doesn't answer the question at all. Your lovely diagram fails to note the metal hook above the spreader on my photo and it's that that I would like to know the technical name of and where to buy them.

    Can anyone tell me the technical name for the hook-like piece of metal on this mast and where to buy one from? It's approximately 24mm long by 6mm wide.
    I've tried searching for forestay hooks and jib hooks but nothing seems to come close to a match.
