Ambau VDM Mast manufactur, need new main sail entry gate

Beitragvon Netram » Dienstag 7. August 2007, 10:37

Guten tag, meine deutsch sind nicht so gut so ich will im english schreiben, entschuldigung.

I have Albin Ballad from 1976 with a mast from Ambau/VDM (see picture below). Now the "sail entry gate" for the sails fitting in the mast is becoming old and need to be replaced. What I mean is the bendable plastic peace(mine is white, see picture) which allows you to insert the sails "sliders" into the mast and are supposed keep them there when the sails slides up/down.

Anyone who knows how to contact Ambau/VDM or reseller?
Anyone who knows any other solutions/other making of spare part?

Thanks in advance

Dear Marten,

My Ballad is from 1977 an I too have a VDM mast. But I dont have such a piece of palastic to close the entry gate of the mast - I never had! As far as I know VDM (as mast manufacturer) is history by know, so you want get much help from this side. I Think this "bendable plastic" as you call it is NOT origanally from VDM. It might be produced by one of the former owner of your Ballad? The Idea to close the entry gate with such a peace of plastic is quite good and I think I will try to produce one for my mast as well.

I also found a solution for selden masts (follow this link: [url]http://www.gotthardt-yacht.de/18_SE_Mastzubehoer.htm) and I talked to them about this "SELDÉN Sail Slide Cassette Kit", but they said it fits for selden masts only...

In case you find a better way, please let me know!

Best Wishes
Armin.
