Pearson 303 ; Mast Pad Eye Location

May 21, 2016
I have a Person 303 built in 1986. I want to install a pad eye on the mast in order to set my whisker pole with the 150% Genoa when sailing.
How far up the mast from the deck should the pad eye be mounted?

These threads below provides guidance on pad eye location. See post 3 in the second thread for pad eye location (clew height).

Not a necessity if you only use the 150 but a track with adjustable padeye would give you a lot more flexibility if you use a working jib or a spinnaker. More expensive than just the padeye however ! Just my 2 cents.
