Olivier, Thanks for that. I assumed the masthead top was the same as the SM.

Hello Herbert, Alan and Bill,

the Santorin main mast was not fitted with the welded aluminum like on the SM2K.
Here are pictures of an SM (before SM2K) masthead with a stainless steel support bolted onto the aluminum flat part at the top. It is, of course, isolated with a plastic sheet to prevent galvanic corrosion.
This plate must be strong and the welded eye that supports the block's shackle must be reinforced.

Good luck.
