Discussions related to the mast
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
I want to buy a Swift 18 and want to tow it using a van, which means the mast will not go beyond the drawbar/hitch. Looking at photos it is clear the mast is much longer than the boat and I will need to attach the mast with a lot extending beyond the back of the boat. I have been told it is legal to have a projection of up to 2m, as long as it is clear to see. This seems very helpful and I hope I will be ok. I would be grateful if I can be given the length of the mast not including navigation lights etc. Also if anyone has a rough idea of how much would project behind the boat. I do not know the measurement between the bow and the end of the drawbar.
