>>> Stepping a Mast

There are lots and lots of ways to step a mast (raise the mast) on a sailboat. On larger craft, this gets into cranes and the like, but for smaller boats, its a process that you do often as you launch and trailer your boat.

Good Old Boat had this nice article covering one fairly simple method.

In surfing around looking at this, I ran across this guy, who seems to have his process down to an art 🙂
