Isomat Welded Mast Base Exit Boxes


Welded Mast Base Exit Boxes
Some Isomat Masts have Welded Exit Boxes for leading internal halyards out of the Mast at Deck level, rather than higher on the mast using standard Exit Plates. Halyards exit the Mast angled aft, toward the cockpit, eliminating the need for any additional hardware at the base of the Mast and the clutter of exposed halyards on the mast. Welded Exit Boxes are especially common on Cruising Yachts.

Two sizes of Welded Mast Base Exit Boxes are commonly found used on Isomat Masts, both sizes come in Single, Double, and Triple Sheave versions. Sheaves in these units are held in place with a 10mm Spring Pin Axle. Spring Pin Axles have a head like a Clevis Pin, and feature a built-in spring clip that locks them in place. Axle Pins are easily removed by prying under the head and pulling directly out.

For replacement Sheaves and Spring Pin Axles, you'll need to know which size Exit Boxes (or Sheaves) you have, and (for Spring Pin Axles) whether they are Single, Double, or Triple Sheave versions.
