Re: raising mast on a 23

Single handed it would be a challenge I think. Gotta check with Ron if there is a simple solution. As I recall, on a Hunter 23 it had a 7ft pole that inserted into the mast about 4' up then you attach the forestay to the top and the main sheet tackle to the lower and 'sheet in'. It was a one man job but you have to be patient and in flat seas. Basically the pole acted as a static lever like a spreader. I am sure Ron has a failry simple solution.
