Mast Boot

Windblown Mast Boot is a self-amalgamating Tape. Jay Herman developed this product using his extensive knowledge Rigging Cruising and Racing Sailboats over 30 years. Due to the variety of mast partners and mast sections to deal with Jay sought out a tape that would bond to itself and to the mast and deck.

He ended up with this self-amalgamating 5 inch wide rubber tape. The tape is very easily applied and will provide a complete waterproof seal to your mast partners in one application.

Other Mast Boots

Most other mast boots are made by either using a rubber sheet wrapped around the mast secured with hose clamps, or a molded hard plastic molding which needs to be sized to you mast.

Universal mast boot uses hose clamps and only fits a certain mast section size and shape. Rubber sheet with hose clamps has been a very popular method of sealing a mast, but the rubber is not self amalgamating and hence needs gluing.
