It would be better for you to measure yours for yourself. It could be different, depending on where the mast step is on your boat, and where the deck attachment is.
set your mast with the line you have, then measure what you've got. Don't forget to shorten the amount by enough for a turnbuckle. That's where your adjustment will be to tighten everything up.

Here's a picture of my turnbuckle, so you can see what I mean. Flickr Photo Download: IMGP0958
