B&G 213 Masthead Unit


Recently I lost some parts to the B&G 213 Masthead Unit. Fortunately another owner (Pat - Shenanigans) had the parts I needed because he had recently replaced all of his electronics including the B&G 213 Masthead Unit.

During the process of removing and inspecting my B&G 213 Masthead Unit, I stripped the male threads on the Masthead Mounting Bracket with the metal female securing nut on the Masthead Unit. I remembered hearing about another owner doing this same thing. I remembered that he had to replace the Masthead Mounting Bracket and the attached wire which runs through the mast. So I was prepared to do this also.

Then, fortunately, included in what Pat (Shenanigans) sent me I found a black plastic threaded sleeve. I had no idea what it was, but began looking at everything I had and realized that the threaded part on the Masthead Mounting Bracket was actually that sleeve and it unscrewed from the Mounting Bracket. I assume that B&G realized that "things happen" on a boat.

So bringing a long story to a conclusion, now all I have to do to solve my cross-thread issue is change the sleeve which screws onto the Masthead Mounting Bracket and replace the 213 Masthead Unit with one that is a combination of what I had and what Pat sent me.

I am attempting to upload a photo to the Album named "B & G Mast Head Wind Instruments." Unfortunately, I have had no luck uploading photos this week...probably a problem with Yahoo! However, you should look at this entire album. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/amelyachtowners/photos/albums/1976709260

I hope this saves someone some bacon.
