Boom Placement (how high)

So...... I definitely need some shade power during the hot days in Kansas and I've started laying out an awning for our marina time..... but..... I'm wondering whether my mast has been chopped at the base and the boom is lower than most S2 7.3s. I'll measure the beast this fall when we step the mast for a new backstay, windex and general maintenance, but can anyone tell me the height of their boom, say over the cockpit? The S2 brochure (the one available on the web) scales out to about 3' above the mast base or over 6' over the cockpit floor. I swear my boom is no more than 2' above the mast base.

Just curious. Its not like I'll go out and buy a new mast ... this one is fine.
