If you’re sailing in shallow water in strong winds then it is a good idea to prevent the mast from digging into the mud in any boat (I brokle a Laser mast like that).
While the Hobie mast flats may be effective, there are automatic inflating alternatives that are less intrusive:.
But first of all I’d suggest testing the volume of buoyancy it provides (using plastic containers) to ensure it does the job.
