I made this wick by taking 3 or 4 feet of 1/8" line, decoring it, and running thin wire (piano wire) up where the core was. The top of this was bent like a paper clip and hooked on the top of that mast step tube.
Thanks for this tip -- would be better than visiting the boat every few days to mop up the floor, as I've been doing.
