Old Mistral Windsurfing Supplies?

I've got an old Mistral Tarifa and love the board -- problem is the
daggerboard's plastic pins used to slide into the daggerboard sleeve,
are cracked.  Can anyone suggest a place to contact regarding
replacement?  Does Mistral have a website?

Karl,
Tried to contact you off-line, but got bounced twice.  Your best bet would
be a Mistral dealer who's been around for awhile.  I also have a Tarifa
for light wind days, and needed those exact parts.  The local dealer had a
collection of old parts and the pivot and detent buttons were in the
bottom of the box.  (Shoreline Sailing in Mountain View, CA)

You should also consider changing the mast track car to the newer black
tab set-up.  Much stronger, and it's easier to configure to be Chinook
compatible.  My old red tab mast car shattered after a particularly
spectacular catapult; as I recovered my senses, the Tarifa decided it had
enough foolishness for one day and surfed itself back to the beach.  I
held onto my rig (worh more than the board anyway!) until a Good Samaritan
rescued me.  YMMV...
