Thank you very much. Yes it does, about two feet taller. Why do you ask?

I found this out near the end of last season when I decided to buy some sails and the sail maker came out to measure. He had worked on another Scampi in CT and notided the difference right away.

Last season, I had tremendous trouble keeping the boat flat. The sails were old, so I'm sure that didn't help, but even after the new sails came there was an issue. The sail maker and I suspect it is sue to the extra high rig.

Its very possible it was made this way. The mast step looks to be original, although a new spar could have been made to fit it at some point. I'll probably never know. Even if it was original, I'll never know if the keep was changed to help offset the taller rig.
