Question
Alpha mast base
Alpha mast base  
Hi there

My trusty old Alpha Phantom from the early 80's has just broken the mast base.
Is there any hope of finding a mast base for this (see attached) or do I have to retire my old board?

I hope to hear from you.

Thanks
Steffen

Answer
Hey Steffen,

It looks like your tendon joint has broken. You can get a replacement here;

The diameter might be larger but you could sand it down to fit into your parts. This is about the only solution I can suggest as finding a complete replacement base will be extremely difficult. If you lose or break either of those parts, you will have a stand up paddle board.

Hope this helps.
Keep on sailing,
Windlover
