Molded from bright white low density polyethylene to fit your original Catalina 34 and Catalina 36 mast section as well as the deck mounted mast collar. Two new stainless steel clamps are included. Regular maintenance is important to keep the boot looking good over time.
Maintenance: To clean use a good detergent, acetone or denatured alcohol. For stubborn stains use MEK solvent. The above cleaning should be followed by a vinyl cleaner like Meguires Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner. After restoration or when installing a new boot, apply a coating of Meguires PolyProtect and Vinyl Conditioner or ArmorAll to improve resistance to staining and dirt accumulation and assist in prolonging the life of the plastic.
1) This part is custom made for the standard, keel stepped, Catalina 34 and Catalina 36 mast. It will not fit the mast extrusion designed for in-mast furling used on the late Catalina 36.
2) The mast must be un-stepped for this boot to be installed. If you cut the boot it to wrap it around an already stepped mast, there will not be enough material to overlap at the seam. To replace a boot on a mast that is already stepped, see our Universal Mast Boot pictured below under "May we also suggest".
