In my experience, Cheoy Lees' rigs tend to vary considerably from the published dimensions. You need to measure the actual boat if you need anything even remotely accurate.

I saw your post about shipping your boat to Annapolis. I hate to say this but shipping a Lion across the continent will probably cost half of what the boat could sell for on the east coast. (Most of the east coast boats were ordered for Long Island Sound and so had a tall rig and the optional lead ballast. This makes a west coast boat not as valuable on the east coast.)

If this is a totally wooden version, it will be pretty tough on the fastenings as well. You may end up having to recaulk and refasten when you get here since the trip dries out the planking, which allows the planks to work more and considering that the boat is being bounced and not uniformly supported in that condition it is pretty easy to strain the fastenings.

But that said, welcome to Annapolis. Its a great place to sail.
