Topic : Hi its that novice again

I have just been given a Proctor mast and boom, which was the original for sn: 2040, the number on the mast is HA 4332, with the wealth of information out there, could somebody tell me what sails would fit and where would i get them, oh by the way the mast is Ali, which i guess most of you knew already.

Please could you apply the tape measure to your mast and boom and post the measurements on here in millimeters.

We're looking for :

Luff Length - the distance between the black band at the top of your mast (if any - otherwise the top of the sail track) and the gooseneck.

Foot Length - the distance between the black bands on your boom. If there aren't any just tell us how long your boom is.

While we are on the subject does anyone have an old cheap ally boom which would replace the one on 1728 which has seen better days.  Current sails have a 2500mm foot.  I could pick it up at Tamesis or Tideway next week when I am down.

Tel 01651 872590 (evenings) or 01224 716640 (work)

That'll be overall; not to or between the Black Bands,(Marks!) if it is a mast made for a Merlin Rocket of a certain age and by Proctors there may well be a score round it about 15" above the heel indication the sheerline point, masts were usually provided overlength by Proctors to allow for difernt builders and different designs. A guess if it was made for a Merlin Rocket applying the above it is a 21' or 21'6" rig mast. Boom will be for transom sheeting and well overlength.
