| Ian & Julie Wed 17 Nov 2021 08:21:21|| Yes we’d like to know too. We need the mast size of the manta and then we could just double it and that would give us the correct length.|
If I’d listened to my old maths teacher I could have worked out the mast height size using trigonometry!
| mantaray Wed 17 Nov 2021 11:41:23|| Is that the formula (double the mast height) ? the topping lift goes to the end of the boom so I am not sure, it has to run from the mast opening up to the top of the mast and then back to the end of the boom|
| Ian & Julie Thu 18 Nov 2021 09:37:03|| We’ve gone by this formula in the past and it’s worked. But you’re right it depends on the rig !|
| mantaray Sat 20 Nov 2021 19:39:15|| I have taken my mast down for a fore stay repair and will take the opportunity to replace my topping lift halyard , on my boat the topping lift halyard runs externally through a pully at the mast head. I was able to measure my old halyard at just a shade under 22 metres.|
