Mast raising for large trailerable boats
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:31:09 PM »
Some years ago the Squadron had a hands-on seminar covering mast raising. That resulted in a PDF writeup with photos of some members in action. The keys to the process are:
1)  a gin pole to pull at the proper angle
2)  a 4-part tackle and jib winch to provide the force
3)  adequate guys to stabilize the mast and gin pole at all mast angles from flat to upright.

The seminar writeup is attached.
