My mast sits on my keel. Where it passes thru the deck is a hole. There must be enough clearance to get it the stick in and out, so there is excess clearance at the mast partner (deck plate around said hole) in the deck. The mast slides in, then the shims are put in to center and align the mast, with a boot over it all to keep out the rain.
