Drake76 Thanks Tommays. Do you have a link? I searched for SSI mast boots and I found a universal mast boot that does not look like your photo.

You want the BIG boot because when the mast is chocked all the way back the smaller one will not cover

I bought the SSI and it was a good fit on the mast ,Buying from the place your listing is PAINFUL

Drake76 Thanks. I didn't consider the circumference. I thought they were referring to the size of the hole the boot covers.

sailor50 Did you measure your circumference? That will determine whether you need small, or medium! The SSI Boots come with adhesive because you have to cut them in half unless you are pulling the stick (an obviously stupid thing to do for a mast boot).

j24 Mast boot size


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.
