yes that date is OK with me . I have had another enquiry for the Firefly mast for an elderly firefly, but having just measured it i find it is not a firely mast as it is just bit taller in all measurements. being 6.6M Tot Ht. 1M to Gooseneck and 5070 to hounds. Im just waiting to hear from them.
the other mast is 6.6 long and since it does not have spreaders might give you a better, cleaner length to cut down. I am guess ing for a duckling you only need about 4M length and this one has the main halyard down the groove rather than inside so you could seal the tube and make it float which could be a good idea for a small boat.
