Replying to:Raising/lowering RL24 Mast
I have a tapered,rotating mast with two sets of side stays the rear set of which is adjustable. I do not have a backstay. We are having trouble getting the nast up and down with only two of us. Because of the rotater, the mast cannot be left in the base without someone holding it up above the cabin. We have tried a rope tied to the forestay and pulled up from a distance but the mast seems to easily fall to one side or the other, sometimes with loud consequences. I find that holding the mast in the cockpit and then trying to hold it whilst climbingto the top of the cabin is rather difficult. Before I make some expensive attachments, can anyone with this type of mast help with out technique?
