RL28 dimensions on the trailer
Looking to build a new shed .. have the RL24 numbers from 305 but would like to know the following dimensions for the RL28 (never know I might be able to buy one some day ..)

(a) maximum height from ground level to mast as stowed for towing

(b) overall length from ball to transom (or extreme end .. rudder, whatever).

No point making the shed a foot too short due to ignorance ... thanks in anticipation

As an aside, periodically requests come up for boat/trailer weights .. weighbridges are a bit rough re accuracy .. only too happy to weigh the occasional boat for a beer or two using considerably more accurate aircraft scales ...

Re: RL28 dimensions on the trailer
I measured an RL28 at the yacht club to get the following dimensions. The type of trailer may have an effect on the dimensions.

From the front of the boat to the tow ball: 900 mm
From the ground to the bottom of the keel: 500 mm

The overall height depends on such extras as targas, biminis etc. but would be a minimum of 2.7 M and the overall length of boat on trailer is 9.5 M.
