Just got in the parts from Hall Spars. Pictures attached for others that may be considering this to know what it is that you are ordering. They aren't on the website, and you do have to call in and order them. They come in 2 foot pieces, and I got two just in case even though it had been mentioned earlier that 2 feet was all you need. They were $12 a piece. Total with shipping to FL $34.06. Will report back on how installation goes. Just FYI, the guy I talked to on the phone knew what I was talking about, but said they weren't made out of neoprene. I guess I got the same thing others have used. Item info from packing slip: Item # BAR-R0732-01008. Description: Rub Rail, BLK PSTC (STKD IN 2' PCS) BARBOUR F-2003.

That is the stuff that I have used for several seasons and it has been very good. I think you will find that one piece will fit nicely around the entire mast with the gap aft at the slot. The ridge in the material laps over the collar of the partners. You can use a rubber hammer to convince it to fit. Over time it takes on the shape of the cross section of your mast. Simplifies things over wedges and does not stick like Spartite. As with other materials you will still need a cover to keep the water out.

Holy hard!!!!! Got the replacement for the wooden mast wedges installed. Found that the tightest space on Holiday was aft. Loosened back stay and winched a couple of halyards forward. Still took Dawn, heat gun, attacking the mast like a line backer, a hammer, and a couple of hours. Finally got it in there though.

After reading this thread, we used wood wedges from above when we stepped our mast in November. Now that we're out sailing outside the Golden Gate, we're finding the mast moves enough to let the wedges fall out. There's one or two on the floor after each day. Like Zach, I've been temporarily re-installing them from below with a hammer and some duct tape. That's obviously not cutting it.

Hall Spars in the US is out of business. I found the product they were selling here:

It's the F2003 extrusion, which unfortunately is only available in 60 foot spools.

I got the rubber surround from Rigging Only or someone like that. It's in a thread here somewhere. Worked excellent. But was like $250. Way too much.
