This article is about a sailing rigging item. For other uses, see Gooseneck (disambiguation).
The gooseneck may be a two axis swivel as pictured. Having an integrated shackle for the tack is common. Goosenecks on older rigs may be formed by a loop attached to the end of the boom that fits loosely about the mast.
