Johan van Zwienen replied to Éric Bouvéron's discussion Length between platform and bottom of the sleeve of the sail in the group Tiki 21
"It depends a bit on how the top of the mast is put together, Distance stay mounts to the top etc. with the 600 cm. Mast I could get the sail about 40 cm from the platform."

"Hi Eric, I longend my mast 50 cm. The total lengt is now 650 cm. I have been sailing regularly the last month and I can confirm the comfort is much bigger. The sail can be raised higher so you have more comfort on the platform. You can see better,…"

Ian Bamsey replied to Johan van Zwienen's discussion Tillers in the group Tiki 21
"My tillers come back over and above the hatches by an few inches. I wondered if it would be better to shorten them, but later realised this is probably by design. If the tillers are short (don't come over the hatch) and you fall or lean on the…"

"You can attach some small wedges on the sides of the rudder heads that will raise the tillers up to clear the hatches."
