Re: Upgrading to a taller than spec mast?

If you change the height of the rig, what happens to your existing sails?

I ended up finding an old Aquarius 23 at my marina that was ready for the dump. Got the rig and a new mainsail for 150$. It is a 6" shorter but a much stout mast section. Got it all rigged up last weekend, it sailed well and looks nice. Waiting for a windy day to give it a good test. Thanks for all the help!

I know I got so lucky! I'm leaving in 4 days for a month long trip up the inside passage, everything worked out just in time.
