Re: BEHOLD! 80' Mast Under 65' Bridge

Wonder why they didn't choose to take down the mast and then reinstall it after getting to the other side of the bridges.

Re: BEHOLD! 80' Mast Under 65' Bridge

Re: BEHOLD! 80' Mast Under 65' Bridge

markpierce===is more difficult to do that with a keel stepped mast...or two, and very spensive, and way too frequent on icw.........is easier to tip the boat....
