I have a standard US cup mast base with the threaded rod out the bottom
which has the square nut on the end which all goes in the standard
slot. Sound familar?
As a light wind muck around board I just bought an old Australian made
Tyronsea 370 longboard which has the sliding carriage in the aluminium
track similar to Mistral, I think.
What I would like to know, based on the parts available here:
Can I just substitute my square deck nut used in my standard mast slot
for the brass connector nut to go in the sliding carriage?( my sliding
carriage has the same fitting as the deck plate shown)
Failing that, could I just get the right sized square nut and use that
in the track to get a non adjustable on the fly connection? I do this
on my 1996 Mistral Screamer II but the longboard track seems wider
requiring a larger nut. Unlike the Screamer, the Tyronsea track doesn't
have a handy flip up end piece to allow the deck nut to be slid into
