Kevin,

The farthest mast step from the bow allowed is 21.259" or 540mm, if you start with that one and go 1" forward you can still have 5 mast steps. I usually sail with my mast at 21 1/16" or 535mm which is the second from the farthest. Hans sails his boat at 530mm or 535mm. So a short mast step sound like a good idea and saves some weight.
