Mast height, varies by boat, and even model of the same boat. Also, are you wondering about mast height, or bridge clearance?

The height of the mast above the waterline depends on the boat, since different boats have different amounts of freeboard and different cabin heights.

Same thing for the distance between the bottom of the keel to the top of the cabin top.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Once questioned about what should be the lenght of a mans legs, Abraham Linclon answered:

From his hips to the ground!!!

Sailortjk1-

Freeboard is generally the height from the waterline to the deck, but generally doesn't include the doghouse's height above the deck, so you'd be a bit short on that measurement unless the boat is a flush deck design, which most cruising boats aren't. Also, you need to add some distance for the VHF antenna, masthead lights and windex.

Jesus Dog, you think the extra antanna is gonna make that much difference. This guy doesn't even know where to start.
"I" does not include the deckhouse.

From the link..........

"I" is measured along the front of mast from the genoa halyard to the main deck. The main deck is where the deck would be if there were no deckhouse.

LOL, true, he's pretty far from a clue...

BTW, you're right about the "I" including the deckhouse, but only gives the mast and doghouse height if the boat is a masthead rig. However, IIRC, if it is a fractional rig, then "I" doesn't go to the top of the mast. So we really need to know what the boat is...

Therelic, is your boat Fractional or Masthead rigged?
Do you know? Do you know the difference?
