Our early SM has the original poles and they extend beyond the railing.
Extra length is very noteable if alongside an SM2K like here in NZ

No Bill that was the long poles. They reported that the way Amel had them stowed they stuck out about a foot. They said they were shortened so that they fit inside the rail. The "short" poles were not modified.

That would be the short poles, right?
Annie's poles were reported to be shortened by original owner because the insurance company did not like them protruding past the rails. I never measured them but they work fine.

I know of no such recommendation. I know that 1 SM owner (Hull before 200) says that he shortened his poles by 57.5 cm. to match the length of a SM2k. I am not sure that this statement from him is totally accurate. I doubt it but trying to determine the facts. And I am not sure of the length of the aluminum tubes on Feierabend SM #86. Can you give that to me? That may tell us all we need to know.
Here is SM444:
So is there a recommendation to shorten a long pole to be the shorter length for better storage and functionality?

It is 467cm on Bonne Anse. End to end. The long pole.
