On the J24 are pole is 20' and stands up on deck 10" forward of the mast and held stable by three shrouds

We use a 4:1 block and tackle and raise a bridle up the mast to a point we KNOW is balanced and secure it

The J24 is keel stepped and requires about 36" of lift before you can start to lower and tilt it to a horizontal position

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
