How to mount a tang to the mast

HOW TO MOUNT A TANG TO THE MAST

Do you mount it with one or two screws? Does it face down. Any pics on how this should look? What size screws? Thanks Ron

I'm getting the impression you should be looking in the Sailing forum instead of the Scale Sailing forum. Are dealing with one of those racing class yachts?

The tang itself should align with the load and the mounting screws should be as perpendicular to that as possible. Two screws would be better, but if the load is light, maybe one will be enough. How big should the screws be? Big enough to do the job.
And yes, if this is about a 'regular' rc sailboat, it probably will get more responses in the sailboat section.

Ron, is the mast aluminum or wood, if it's a hollow aluminum extruded mast slip a wood dowel and epoxy into mast in the areas you intend to use fasteners before you do though to help hold the screw.
