Re: Gooseneck & Kicker Arrangements

If you have higher lowers you can find the mast is over constrained and feels dead.... the advantage, as you say of a goose neck set back is that the outhaul is effectively let out and if you position the bottom of the kicker forwards it let off as you bear away.

Re: Gooseneck & Kicker Arrangements

Re: Measurement Practice

Was there an outcome to this discussion? Or is it still a bit grey? I suppose the real test is, would a vertical 'bump' (when looking from the side) to meet the 275 measurement be acceptable as long as it meets the plan view restrictions?
