Was sailing, such a juicy wind, loud noise!! Shackle on mast tang from lowes snapped like wood, so sad.

Load rating?? Next purchase: mcmastercarr.com where smart people work.

So upset, writing from my trampoline, waiting for tow hehe

OEM Hobie shackle from Riley Australia has breaking load rating of 2500Kg. But, as with everything on a boat, wear, corrosion, and work-hardening can and will cause failure. Mast tang shackles should be considered wear items and replaced when worn. Certainly if it’s a new-to-you boat, it’s $25 well spent. Also use safety wire.
