Surfing & Windsurfing/Very Old VINTA 360 Sport Mast Track broken

Question
Hi,
I have a very old (80's?) VINTA 360 Sport windsurfer and the recessed part of the sliding mast track, which the bottom of the mast foot would slot/clip into, is cracked.
Is it possible to remove and replace the entire sliding mast track mechanism with a more modern one?
Thanks,
Gordon

Answer
Hey Gordon,

Another sliding mast track would work but the key part would be the fit. Most built in tracks are about the same depth and width, but lengths can vary as each board maker designed their own. If you find one that fits width and length, you should be able to drill holes in the track to match your track holes. If you find something that will work, you may have to change the connection on the bottom of your mast base to match the new track ( usually some type of pin). Google adjustable mast tracks for pics, info, and possible parts.

Hope this helps.
Keep on sailing,
Windlover
