Heloo there to all you wise old salts I have a project
I need help with here goes!
has wooden spruce box masts, I dont trust them due to not having been there for construction and as its a used boat
from 74 I dont want to push my luck. I have a friend whos ketch
has alumminumm sticks and is willing to swap them. There is no crane nearby so instead of motoring both boats up to the nearest crane weve decided to derigg his boat with my wood masts and motor
mine up to the crane swap the masts using the crane motor
down and reverse the process, putting the wood masts up on his ketch
using the aluminum
ones now on my boat.... Whef!! follow so far??? Id like to now say to anyone waiting inevitably to discorage us to not bother replying. Were doing it this way and thats it. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to bring those metal sticks down with my current
rig please do tell. I figure it will require anchors rowed off to the side from out mast
heads to stabalize the boats then using block and tackel winches and hard hats to carefully lowerthem down to deck
level. Any info or ideas at all on how to do this would be greatly appriciated thank you much.
