Spartite here too... but it's not leakproof by itself (at least not for us) I use a tape boot that seems to do the job..

As for wedges, they should be put where ever required to properly center (athwartship - measure it; don't simply assume the mast partners are truly centered) and properly locate the mast fore/aft for rake/bend.
