Thanks to all, looks like Spar-Tite is the product of choice.

Is there any benefit to installing a proper fitted boot, as opposed to the tape, I saw some for sale at the boat show but didn't have measurements with me at the time.

Faster - now you have done it.
What do you mean "don't assume the mast partners are centered" that was my very first assumption.
So what does one measure to, to ensure it is centered? Grab rails, toe-rails, if the partners aren't centered how can I be sure of anything else?

As far as the fore/aft, rake/bend goes, I have asked that question of 10 people and received 10 answers. What is a the right answer?

I had assumed that with a furler being a fixed length and the mast step being unmovable that it would be pretty hard to get it wrong.
Perhaps I am missing something?
