My Morgan 30 has a headstay length of 39', so 31' for your Columbia doesn't seem excessive. Headstay lengths vary considerably from one design to another, of course......
I fitted an FF6 and am delighted with it. I know it is a design which can cause serious sailors to splutter into their beer, but the experience of a number of guys in my area suggests that it works well and lasts well and for those of us on a serious budget, it is perfect. It was also very easy to fit.
Go for it.
Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
