The most popular round type maststep for the Optimist dinghy. This Optimist maststep has an oval cup, which allows the mast to tilt forward when going downwind. Different mast rakes can easily be repeated using the scale on the base. Separately a mast step spring lock can be purchased. The stainless steel spring prevents the nut from turning accidentally. There is no need for additional locking nuts anymore.
Stainless steel lock to secure your Optimist mast from coming out of its step when the boat is capsized. This mastlock has a rubber insert and should be clamped around the mast just under the deck.
