    I am new to laser sailing and the forum , please could someone tell me the difference in rig dimensions between the radial and the full rig ? I know the sail area is about 20% less on the radial but are the mast and boom the same on both ?

    Thank
    Gene

    The boom is the same. The Radial mast is about 3 feet shorter and has different bending qualities--it is softer.

    The Laser boom is the same length for the Standard, Radial and 4.7 and is 2740 mm long

    The Laser mast comprises two separate sections.

    The top section is the same length for the Standard, Radial and 4.7 and is 3600 mm long.

    The bottom mast section for a Laser Standard is 2865 mm long
    The bottom mast section for a Laser Radial is 2262 mm long
    The bottom mast section for a laser 4.7 is 1810 mm long

    Hence the total mast length for:-
    Laser Standard is 3600 + 2865 = 6465 mm
    Laser Radial is 3600 + 2262 = 5862 mm
