Probably a really dumb question, but if your boat had a 70' mast
and you wanted to be able to move up and down the East Coast
... and you needed to buy a new mail sail anyways... could you have 6 feet cut off the bottom of the mast
? Just relocate the Boom etc... does anyone ever do this?
I assume you would cut the bottom but maybe it would be easier to cut the top ??
Or do they just try to sell the 70' Mast and buy a new shorter one ?
I understand I would be giving up sail area but figure in good wind
it won't matter and in light winds I would just be motor
