Re: It's a Tall Rig!
The sailmakers tell me that you cannot go off of published dimensions. The luff length can vary pretty widely from supposedly identical boat to its sistership even with a tall rig or short rig from the same year. Because these variations can be a foot or more, the only safe way to do this is to take physical measurements of the actual boat. Its not as much of a problem (other than performance) if the mast is a a bit longer than published but its a serious problem if the mast is shorter, which it more often the case.
