thanks sailing dog we'll run a tape up and check the measurements. We are going up the mast next week to replace the mast head light. That makes prefect timing.
You could use a halyard that's already in place, instead of climbing the mast. Just make sure the top where it exits the mast is playing fair with what you are trying to do. Drop the halyard until it just touches the starboard side, then swing the halyard over and see if it "just touches" the port side.
(I see this "Listing To Starboard" thread isn't a political thread.)
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
