Mine is in my yard and the rain has stopped.  The mast sits 61" above the
transom on Stan's crutch.  I tow this way as well and have never had a
height problem.  I did fabricate a 4" x 4" support beam that bolts to the
mast mount and prevents excessive bowing of the mast.  Stan says the mid
support is not necessary but I feel better.
