We picked up our new-to-us boat last weekend. We're going to have her hauled (including unstepping the mast) on Saturday to give her some lovin', but we can't figure out how to remove the boom because of the lazy jacks (which our previous boat didn't have).
The boat has lazy jacks (I'm assuming Harken
because it looks like the same set-up), and the straps are riveted in place. We can untie everything, but then how will be set it back up again when the mast
is stepped in the spring? The blocks are too high to reach from the deck
, so I suppose we could just go up the mast
in a chair.
I feel like we're missing something obvious. Any suggestions?
