Looking to get some info on the Tandem Island, and can't find info through excessive searching:

What diameter (OD) is the TI mast?

Some post indicates 18' 1.75". Is that above hull, or total length including the fitting?

Trying to feel out its application in another area...

Thanks - Peter

I believe that is the height (not the diameter) of the mast above water. It better be because I negotiate under a few low bridges round here!

according to my caliper, the base is 2.086 inches tapering to 1.225 inches at the mast head

No, no, that's very helpful. I can look at pictures and scale accordingly if I need the diameter of the drum or base socket. Thank you very much. :D
