Great help, I've made rough measurements of 6" x 3" x 34.5'.  Could you get 
the thickness and total height?  I was only able to measure from the deck to 
the top of the mainsail.

What are the class rules?  I'm in Seattle right now, but I hope to sail it 
to the east coast in a few years.  I'd want my win to be legit. ;)
