Mast Drips

Hi all

Looking for help or experience on rebooting and taping our keel stepped mast.

Any help would go a long way


Thanks
Tim

mast leak

As a boat builder I have fixed this problem on many keel stepped masts. See if you can get hold of a truck innertube. Slip this down the mast (or up if its out of the boat) when you step the mast tape the underside by the cabin head then pour polysulphide into the gap this will harden to a rubbery material then fix the innertube with jublie clips top and bottom. Wala no more leaks
