Hello all. I've been lurking for some time but never posted. I'm in the market for a 40-50 ft cat in the next six months. We live near Oriental, NC (where she will be kept). We very much want to keep our mast
clearance at or under 65 to keep the boat ICW
friendly. However, some of the boats we are most interested in exceed that by a good amount. Anyone with any experience refitting a boat with a shorter mast
? My initial idea is to go with a carbon rig and a new sail plan to make up for potential lost
performance. What advice would you guys have? What's it gonna cost me, ballpark?
