Whisker poles

Fritz Feiten

My 1997 C400 MK1 has a Z-Spar mast with a T groove on the forward part of the mast. I understood that at one time you could purchase an attachment point for a whisker pole that fit into the T groove, but they no longer offer this, nor does Catalina Direct or RigRight. The presence of the groove makes it harder to attach
things to the front of the mast. Curious how others with this Z-Spar mast dealt with this.
