C & C 24 measurements help needed

I bought my C & C 24 last year and it is time for a new mainsail. I need 1 more measurement that I am hoping someone can help me with.

Basically, I need to know the distance between the aft face of the mast and the backstay at boom level. My boat is on the hard at the moment with the mast off, so it is the only measurement I can't get.

Does anyone have one rigged that can take a measurement for me?

Re: C & C 24 measurements help needed

I just saw your post. In case you're still looking for info, hope this helps....

I have a 1980 C&C 24. The distance between the mast, just under the boom, and the backstay is 128 inches.
