I am still trying to get further details, this is a wooden boat in possession of the current owner since 1975…the owner has measured the mast…the current owner states

"The mast overhangs the stern by 41" when the other end is exactly even with the end of the bow. Since the boat is 15' 6" + 41" , then the mast is about 19' 11".

Does this sound reasonable?

I live in the NW on Orcas Island, about an 1 1/2 north of Seattle and an hour by ferry…I don't believe I will see many other Windmills out my way, but should be able to practice for regattas in Portland, OR; Eugene, OR or CA?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
