Has anyone replaced the mast boot on a PY26 without removing the mast?  Mine has seen better days, but not sure about how best to replace.  Thanks.

I used rubber roofing material for mine. Made it tall enough to fold back down over the worm drive clamp, then I filled the top with silicone to help seal up around the mast. Also used rubber cement to glue up the seam.
