Default long distance stroke length (no speed)?


I love to do easy (slow) flying in pools or lakes.

We have a 33.33m (yes...) pool here and I (50y, 1.75m) need 11-14 strokes per lane when flying about 50 minutes. The absolute minimum has been 9 strokes (gliding after wall < 7m).

What stroke length / body-length(~wing-span) ratio can be reached for old swimmers?

I do not care about speed, 22-24 min per 1000m is my comfy-zone, but I really do not want to become slower than (most) breaststrokers. What do you think, is it possible to reach a stroke-length / winspan ratio of >2.0 without losing too much speed?
