‘Modern’ realities that have happened since on many Jollyboats :-

Most newer mainsails have a full length top batten (but otherwise measure).

Rudders have been ‘free’ for some time.

Flying 15 masts are the most common replacement mast for a Jollyboat, and are almost identical to the original Jollyboat mast dimensions. About 6 inches longer at the foot (but minus the original mast jack arrangement) and the gooseneck has to be moved lower (top and bottom bands for the mainsail are 21 feet apart).
