I believe these are the correct top sockets for the one-man top (1923).




Am I right? I want to be sure I have the right ones before I go to work on them.

Looks right, except for the incidental damage.

Good deal. As long as I have the right ones, fixing them will be no big deal. There are just two mangled sockets, and I have replacements for those. I'll sure have a lot less in these than the $1286.95 (plus shipping) that the new ones cost. I notice Mac's website says "Uses straight wood bows". Actually the bows are slightly curved so the rain will run off. That's why they're called bows.

Steve, please post pics, or videos, as you redo your bows. There has been info on here before but I would like to see how you do it. thanks.
