Amen to that! You shouldn't expect to be able to tango in the cabin of a 28' boat. Anyway, it's not that much of a squeeze and that's what I would do if I was starting over with the mast. The boat as built (and properly maintained) is not unseaworthy at all but it would be more seaworthy with this modification. Great design but there are few points where you have to wonder what they were thinking on the production boats.
