Mastboot Tape

Post by mikegabour »

I just purchased a 1986 Freedom 36'.

What do folks recommend for a Mastboot system. I have wedges from the old Spartite Mast Wedge System. What else do I need to step the mast and seal? Is LifeSafe Mastboot tape recommended?

Thanks, excited to join the Freedom team!

I use a soft plastic mast boot with hose clamps around it on my F38. I link to it in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13225&p=53226#p53226

We have used white Flex Tape with great success.
