I have yet another question. My mast boot is torn. It is a 1984 J24.
I have gone to Kenyon J/24 Mast & Components
And noted that there are 2 mast boots available. My next step was to measure the opening. From outside the collar around the hole for the mast I have measured 10.5". I appreciate that I am Canadian and prefer metric, but I do not see a 10.5" option.
Mast Boot, Short (10" long) for Rectangular Deck Collar K-10674-MBS $ 59.00
Mast Boot, Long (11 1/2" long) for Rectangular Deck Collar ..3 K-10674-MBL $ 49.00
So my question is: What to do? Should I order both and see what fits? Does anyone have any information by year which boot I need? Do I need to go back to measuring school? ( I am serious here).
As always, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
