The Wylo 35.5 has a pulpit rail that cleverly doubles as an A frame to enable one person to simply lower the mast. This is handy for maintenance and for access to inland waterway cruising where bridge height might be an issue. When lowered the mast rests on a permanent set of boom gallows.

160 years ago you sent us your criminals, fine.
But sending these useless middle managers, sheesh, that's just mean.

What did we ever do to you?!

Reminds me of the chapter in Hitch Hikers' Guide about the Telephone Sanitisers.

P.S. I fixed up your grammar slip on the quote above, no charge...
Sorry mate. The British didn't "send' us "their" criminals. We ARE their criminals. Moreover we are their useless crims - the ones who couldn't steal a loaf of bread without cocking it up and getting caught. Unless you are an aborigine in Oz, you are an immigrant.

Attached is a photo of Ariel, a Wylo 32, with Tahiti in the background. Ariel was owned by Kathy and Ian at the time. Great boat.
