I recently purchased a 1975 Omega 14 and the mast was repaired at some point. It looks like the mast broke in half and was welded back together over a smaller tube connecting the two halves. I have had the boat out in 45 mph gusts so I am not worried about the structural soundness of the mast but I want to know how much shorter it is after the repair. Can anyone tell me how long the mast is supposed to be? I have another mast that I can cut to length to replace this one if it lost significant height.
