    Is there anyone out there who could help me understand the mizzen height variations on 33 mk2?

    I went to look at a mk2 yesterday, and the mizzen boom would mean that the outside helm could only be used seated, if all round visibility was required.

    Others that I have seen from a distance appear to have higher booms…

    Thanks

    Hi Tom,
    when I commissioned my 37, I had a long and protracted discussion where to have my boom. I wanted it much lower as I’m only 5ft 8in tall and envisaged problems hooking on the main halyard and doing a harbour stow. Kai however was concerned about sail loading and head contact with a lower boom so we compromised and agreed a height which was then sent to Seldon to fix. Thus all vessels will have different boom heights, and expensive to change.
