It looks like you only used one sleeve therefore one layer for the repair. Do you know which sleeve you used? There are a lot of options on the A&P website.

Raven, Im wondering how your masts have held up? The job you did looks great in the pictures. Why did you choose fiberglass over dynel and did you go with one layer of the glass sock or two? I'm aabout to jump in and take the same plunge with Seasops masts. I like the idea of using the 207 Hardner as I was thinking of trying G-Flex but perhaps that is overkill and the west resin and 207 hardner is the way to go.
Whimsy, also intersted in how your masts are doing with the dynel socks.
Any tips, or cautions any one has for me will be much appreciated......I promise to post plenty of Pics! Rick

Can anyone tell me how much epoxy I might require to do each mast? Im noy sure if Ill do one or two sock layers, but I'm leaning toward two using the dynel, unless anyone can provide a reason to do one or to use fiberglass. I'd certainly prefer one layer in terms of cost and work involved but Eric S. says two layers in his procedure. Perhaps using fiberglass sock only one layer is needed? Any thoughts? Thanks, Rick
