I am going to add a tabernacle to the mast
of my Hunter
26.5 as I need to be able to raise and lower the mast
easily. I am thinking of perhaps hooking the Forestay up to a winch
My thinking is that I would use a remote
control and have enough cable to allow the mast to lower to about 75% and then just secure the mast to yoke on an A-frame. Reason for this is to navigate under a couple of low bridges. As far as tuning goes I thought I would just take tension measurements on currently tuned mast stays. Then on my first tensioning continue monitoring until I reach proper tension then mark the stay.
Any and all thoughts welcome.
