Has an optimum height been determined for extended pylons? It seems most
are standardizing on 8 feet, though some are adjustable to make them
shorter, and some go as high as 10 feet.
I think that they are all about 8 feet. The ten foot pole is not
actually 10 feet. It is ten feet at the top like the others after taking
into account that it starts 2 feet up on the existing pylon. I think
they are all about 10 feet if you measure off the floor of the boat but
the pylon itself is only about 8 feet. Any more and you might be making
it more dangerous with the extra leverage but I am not sure. It would
also be hard to attach the rope if it were much taller.
