Project Cedrus and Sabfoil 3D printed mast end covers

I've been meaning to model some protective TPU bumpers for the project cedrus classic mast. I don't leave my foil setup assembled during transit, so the parts are often bouncing around with other hard things in the back of the truck. These are shock absorbing slide on bumpers to help protect the mast ends as well as a cover for the Sabfoil kraken mount. I use a Sailworks mast cover for the rest of the mast.

Nice one :thumb:

Another tip is to use either a standard mast pocket, or just sew one yourself.

This way you have something over the mast base, so it wont get damaged at the corners, nor damage other gear in your car.
In addition, it will protect your mast on both sides, so it doesnt get scratches from your other gear/masts/boards etc.

Or use a lengthwise-sliced pool noodle. Universally adaptable!

Taiguy: the Sailworks covers that come with NoLimitz masts are super premium. Does Sailworks also make custom covers?

I don't think they make custom covers so much as generic covers. My wife and I both have sailworks covers for our masts. I've been buying sailworks foil covers as well, much nicer than the OEM moses stuff.
