AHPC sell external hound fittings, made to fit the Mozzie mast.
Just tell them it's for a Mosquito.

Rob,

we use ones similar to what the A's use but I make them. The backing plate is inside the mast and all you see is the "beak" and the rivets, simple, light and very strong.

Can send you more info when i get home if you want, pics etc.

Rob,

The image from the Mozzie Photo Bucket is of my mast when I had it at Hazelwood pondage for the 1st training weekend.
Like everyone has said it was purchased from AHPC. Everything else available at the time was just too small or didn't have the ability to mount the trapeze wires. frown

Regards,


Peter

Rob,

An observation.

My mast has the internal one and it is showing signs of corrosion and pulling through the wall. Maybe this is only a reflection of age or perhaps not enough duralac when it was put on. (when I had the failure of my hook and pully last season there was no evidence of duralac around the fittings) I'm planning to replace it with the AHPC one and or do a new mast, if funds permit, as part of my winter overhauls.

Cheers
