I had a 25G, and coated the mast with white lithium grease where it went
through the top tube.
Then clamped an inverted "no-hub" plumbing fitting onto the mast just above
the top of the 25G's tube to keep water out. Was fine for 10 years, before
the Douglas fir it was mounted on died...

It's been quite a while since I had a 25G, but as the mast was a loose fit,
I never used any lube.
