Fairline use several OEM suppliers os these types of s/s components. Lots of firms can make them. Height above deck 775mm
You need to create a "detent" to hold them in. If you just have plain simple sockets you will lose them. Google for s/s devices called "Spring Plunger" eg http://uk.rs-online.com/mobile/p/ind...ngers/0478911/and http://www.ondrives.com/mechanical-s...rs-m3-m20.html
The deck sockets contain a lathe-turned component, to create an annular ring for the spring-ball to "click" into. The male spigot at bottom of the 30mm tube is also machined, and drilled to make a threaded hole for the spring plunger to screw into. See section sketch below.
You must put the spring plungers in with loctite. Mine weren't, and then unscrewed with vibration and the "dead" end got into the annular groove, so I couldn't remove them (it got fixed under warranty!).

Hmmm "jfm" knows a bit about engineering too! for a *** packet drawing it could pass muster! :-)

Oi Rob! I could have done it in SolidWorks but *** packetery is much more friendly. That's not any old *** packet though. Note the fine detial: for example the cross hatching goes into the thread where the thread is empty, but not where there is a threaded component screwed into the thread. That is pure BS308 engineering drawing that is. And done here on the boat, and scanned in and 3G-ed from South of France :-)

so what are you exactly, I'm confused!
looks like you're trained engineer, work in legal/finance/whatever but not engineering and have a naval arch hobby
nice sketch btw
ah, and since we're in thread drift mode, if you get 10mins and the weather is right, could you please retake the pics of the Mystere in your marina?
