seabreeze_97 is on a distinguished road
I appreciate the input guys. I pretty well had it in my mind that going longer was not a good idea, but wanted opinions. I agree, it's not a good idea, particularly on a tender boat. No, I wasn't trying to turn the boat into something it isn't, she'll never be the screamer of the pack. Not looking for that. I mean, speed is nice, but when mentioned regarding sailboats, I think, Hobie Cat or something like that. I'm happy just having the boat. Again, just wanted some reassurance before making that cut in the mast. I am curious on an official response and will try the Hood Design Group. Maybe I'll get even more info than just the mast length question. I guess if the wind is that light, I'll just have to run the engine. One Bristol 32 owner (S/V Kestrel) said he didn't even run a headsail furler to avoid the extra weight aloft. Thanks.
