:: :: Do you know the section and dimensions? Length? In

:: 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.
