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.
