Comments about Leather Spreader Boot Kits:
I had these in service on my mast for 6 years in the Texas coastal sun and they worked great. After you sew them on they form nicely around the ends of the spreader. They turned firm as the leather dried in place. Removed them to service the rigging and found the leather in great shape but stiff. Going to clean and recondition with mink oil or like and leave dry then reinstall. Threads held up very well during service.
Better than the plastic boots I have used over the years. Only pain is sewing them on. You just have to thread the holes and tie the knots on the ends. Takes a little time but not difficult. Definitely a task to do when the mast is down. You don't need to pay a rigger just do it yourself.
They look classic.
