OK, if I understood
the racing specs properly and my arithmetic still works, then I could say
certain things based on the following data:
The luff of my main
is 24 ft
I can only hoist it
for racing so the head is 26' above the deck.
I can only downhaul
it so that the boom is 24 ft from the head of the sail which translates to
2 ' above the deck.
Therefore, I can
place a black mark on my mast 2 ft above the deck and if I hoist the main to the
top, I will be within spec. Correct?
Now, if I'm not
racing, could I theoretically hoist the main to the top of my mast and
raise the boom to say, 4' above the deck (30 ft mast required here.) What
issues does this cause? Sure would generate a lot of head room and provide
an easy bimini installation....
