As we don't have a hobie store near by we have improvised a Teflon chip replacement. If you buy a bag of practice golf balls and cut them in half they fit perfectly around the base of the mast. Plus they are cheap, a couple bucks for 12 balls - 24 plastic washers.

A lot of guys at my club just use the lid from a coke bottle or water bottle. Don't last very long so no good if you never drop your mast but are good if you do!
