    Any suggestions on what to use under the aluminum mast plate. I have cut off the mast by an 1-1//4" and want to block it back up? Thanks

    A 1 1/4" aluminum shim with the same profile as the plate? Longer bolts too

    I would use UHMW, or StarBoard

    Plastics are durable and weather resistant, but how are their compression properties?
