Mark if I drag my boat down to where you're at and follow you around would that make us a convoy?

Perhaps, since this is a sailing forum the OP is referring to a 'center board'.

How does one base a boat and mast on a centerboard?

This is not a sailing forum, this is a cruising forum. While motor-boaters are a bit light on the ground here there are some.

Post #4 from the OP Indicated CB meant Chesapeake Bay.

My opinion only - 6 ft would be the deepest draft practical, with less than 5 ft ideal. Mast height less than 64' if you want to do any Intracoastal travel.
