Molded from black low density polyethylene to fit your original Catalina 34 and Catalina 36 mast section for boats equipped with in-mast furling and a keel stepped mast or a Catalina 42 non-furling mast and in-mast furling (later spar that no longer had mast track for spinnaker car extruded onto forward face of mast). Fits the deck mounted mast collar as pictured below under "More Images". 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.
Includes the upper and lower clamps.
• Circumference top (at mast): ~23-1/2"
• Circumference bottom (at collar): ~32-1/2"
• Height (relaxed, measured vertically): ~5.75"
• Height (stretched out, measured along rubber): ~7.5"
This boot can only be installed while stepping the mast. It cannot be installed when the mast is in the boat.
