Looks like whoever prepped the mast didn't do a very good job of it. If you're going to be keeping the boat for any period of time, I'd recommend stripping the mast and re-painting it after doing a very thorough prep job.
IIRC, Tommays just repainted his mast and boom and can probably give you some good hints on doing a decent job of it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
