Re: Securing mast at the 'Partners'
Those blocks of wood are called wedges and are used to keep the mast centered where it passes through the deck (at the 'partners'). Is there any reason why you can't use the wedges you have? You should be able to just drop them into place. You may need a soft mallet to really fit them. It's not very difficult.
If the ones you have are damaged, you can buy new ones, made out of rubber, from rigrite.
