Spreader Boots

Hi All,

I purchased (what I thought was a pair that would fit) spreader boots from Taylor Made and they fit like doo-doo. They're the 2-3" (largest they have) and when you install them the gap is rediculous. I'd have to use a quarter role of whit tape to make it look 1/2 way OK.

Recomendations are welcome. Thanks!

Dave

Re: Spreader Boots

I just use rigging tape.

A friend's boat has some nice custom ones sewn with sunbrella over foam that snap into place.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.

Re: Spreader Boots

After posting this, I found darn near an identical post... word for word. Sorry. I'm still at a loss what to do. I need an answer before Friday.

Re: Spreader Boots

I've used these in the past and have been very happy with them. Very durable and much better quality compared to the Taylor vinyl ones.
