| SPARTITE Mast Wedging Support and Sealer
Spartite is the modern answer to the ancient problem of mast support and sealing at the partners. Spartite is a pre-measured two part polymer poured into the cavity between the mast and the partners while the mast is in the boat.
The Spartite Kit
Each kit comes with complete instructions and materials for the yard or yacht owner to build a simple mold out of even the most complex partners or mast collar. Spartite makes a one piece perfect fitting mast chock that replaces archaic wedges.
Spartite is available in one formula, Spartite 2000. This version is designed for both race and cruise boats of any size. Spartite 2000 is available in two kit sizes, Kit 1 - which is a small kit, and Kit 2 - which is a large kit.

The Spartite ring shrinks less than one thousandths of an inch and when installed properly will radically reduce or eliminate leaking at the partners. Spartite ensures secure and correct mast position in the partners all season and makes correct placement of the mast in the partners automatic whenever the mast is restepped. This is an exceptional feature for racers who trailer to regattas, sailors who remove their spars annually, and boats with unique rig placements. Racers, who like to move their mast fore and aft to adjust to conditions, can pour Spartite to fix the athwart ship position of the mast and allow space fore and aft for quick, easy adjustment by the addition or removal of spacers. Under sail, the one piece structure of Spartite elimates the problem of wedges falling out or moving.
