I'm sure someone has answered this somewhere but I have not been able to confirm. I am building a pvc pipe carrier for the mast/sail while traveling on my trailer. What is the full length from one end to the other of the TI mast?

Thanks & fair winds........

P.S. I don't have my TI yet or I would have walked outside and made the measurement, I promise.......

It's around 18' 1.75".

You should read THIS post. Of particular importance is the diameter of pipe required for the job.

Ah yes, thanks so much! Interesting note that 5" pipe was used and someone replied they could not find 5" pipe.

Well, at Lowes I found 6" pipe which is 10' long. I am going to saw it in half length-wise to make a trough for the mast to ride in. I will couple the two pieces together [cut off 1"] so my mast carrier is 19' long, and put 1/2 of a cap piece on each end so things stay in place. Once done, I'll post a picture.

Add some bungee or something over the mast in the trough so it doesn't 'hop' out at an inconvenient time. :)
