I’d just wrap some cloth-backed tape around the ends of the ama arms and then some more where the arms exit the sockets – many owners have done this to reduce movement in waves but it also helps to protect wear on the arms and tape is cheap!
I’d also consider getting a cover for the rigged boat as well as a sock for the mast since it’s not advisable to leave carbon exposed to UV for long periods.

great job keeping this forum active! Thanks for that idea, I have spinnaker repair tape and mylar tape, I’ll experiment with those.
WRT covers, yes, that’s on my list. For the mast, I’ll probably put some clear-coat; there’s a particular clear-coat that locals working on carbon use and recommend and is apparently the bees knees. We’re in Miami, so UV is serious business.
