Please note, not to over inflate the Optimist buoyancy bags. When bags are properly filled, they will be soft to the touch. Over inflated bags may burst when heated up by the sun or rising temperatures. Make sure there are no sharp points in your boat that would snag or puncture the buoyancy bags.
The Optimax Optimist deck collar is made of Delrin to create minimal friction between the sleeve and the collar. The oval inner diameter allows the maximum fore/aft and minimum side play and the tapered inner diameter allows the mast to be raked. 4 countersunk mounting holes. Hole size in deck: 57 mm.
A seperate sleeve is available which is fitted around the mast at deck level and protects the mast from wearing.
