Rough drawing of a trailer I am using.

Trailer

This is a rough drawing with measurements of a trailer I borrowed from a friend. He has a shallower sailboat which is perfect for this trailer. The Grampian is about 10 - 12 inches taller than the tops of the rollers and so requires wood blocks and such to make up the difference.  

Measurements

Sails

Luff - 22ft 1in

The main was constructed with plastic slugs, 3/8in, for the luff and a boltrope foot. There is one set of reef points.

I have not measured the big genoa. I will get the measurements here in the near future.

 
Some other measurements

Mast
- 25ft 7 1/4in; does not include the base or 'shoe' at bottom or the masthead crane at top.
Mainsail luff groove from top of feed opening to the working top of the mast (about two inches below the crane to allow for the shackle, etc) - 22ft 8in.
There is 7 inches from the top of the boom attachment to the top of the bolt rope opening, which gives 23ft 3in of mainsail hoist.
 
Boom - 10ft 0in without hardware, (gooseneck, boom end cap).
 
These are actual measurements, not just taken from the builder's/sailmakers guide, of "I", "J", "P" and "E".
 
I - 26ft 3in
J - 9ft 4in
P - 23ft 6in
E - 10ft 0in
