I have a 1973 413 ketch at 54'. Yours is a 415? 416? Ketch? Sloop? Standard or tall rig w/ two sets of spreaders? Since there are so many variables I'd would not trust an online response. Take a direct measurement. Run a line up your main halyard and measure it from the deck. Add the deck to waterline and what is probably 2' from the sail head to the masthead. Don't trust my two foot guess either. Tape a wooden dowl rod to the halyard so it stands up when hoisted and look with binoculars to match what ever you have standing proud at the masthead.
