Subject: "Mariner 31 whisker pole size ?"
In reply to: Ardi 's message, "12-14 f would be good" on - Sunday - 01/12/14 - 2:33pm

Can someone who actually uses a whisker pole on their M31 tell me what size the whisker pole is that they use, or that originally came with the boat? I spoke with Forespar and they said 10-18 in a three section, but I was hoping to get the best info from you sailors that actually use them. Thanks in advance.

I have a 10-18, 2 pieces , got it for free from smb that had it in the shed. Wish I had a shorter one. Because like I said previously is bigger and heavier than what I would like to have, specially short handed and choppy seas. I would recommend top 16' unless you want to race and/or have enough crew that know what they are doing. If you use it for pleasure forget about all that stress that you will put on yourself and the boat for 1/10 of a knot that you will get with a bigger one.

Good luck
