Here is a pic with sail down. This weekend will try to get one with main sail up. The boom is at about 90 deg and clears the dodger by about 6 inches. With the main sail up, and topping lift slack, the boom can rub the dodger. the boom is fixed at the mast and cannot be raised or lowered at that connection. From above comments, when hoisted the main should allow me to have topping lift completely slack and then the boom should not hit the dodger. Once I hoist the main, I will do some tweaking to see if I can get it this way.
