Z-SPAR  Masthead Spinnaker Bails


Z-Spar Cast Mastheads use a variety of very specific Spinnaker Bails.  Most Mastheads will have 2 holes drilled on the forward side, the Spinnaker Bail slides into these holes and is locked in place with 2 vertical pins. To determine which Spinnaker Bail will fit your Masthead, measure the diameter of the Spinnaker Bail holes and the distance between their centers. If your Masthead does not have Spinnaker Bail holes (or provisions for a U-bolt) it was not designed for them, and other solutions will be required, See other Masthead Spinnaker Bails & Cranes. See also, Z-Spar Masthead Rig Mastheads.
