I like a little extra main halyard, in case I need to use it as a topping lift, emergency backstay, or to help hoist something aboard. So rather than measuring straight up and down the mast, I would measure up the mast and back to the chainplate for the backstay, adding a bit for wiggle room and splicing a shackle.
