Hi, does anyone happen to know the distance from the bow to the moment arm of the fully rigged Getaway (with mast up)? Eyeballing, it appears to be roughly around the point of the coolers, but I'd be interested in an actual measurement. Without the mast up, it's obviously going to move backwards, but I'd like to know what it is with the mast up.

Man, that's a nautical question! I don't even know what a moment arm is!

I use the beachwheels and the boat seems to balance almost exactly at the shroud attachment points. I don't have the actual measurement though.
