We lifted the stripped mast on to the deck and rigged it up on deck. The day was, at this point, perfect…
… With the wind generator tied off and the boat and crew ready to DO THIS THING!!!
… We hoisted our mast. The new wind-direction-indicator was telling us that it was our last chance to “beat the storm” (HA!!!) back to the slip. It kicked up a bit on the way back home but the rig was totally in place and the crew was elated, The Mast Was Back UP!!!
Not a creak, not a groan, every single piece went in place and it was an awesome feeling.
We even beat the storm that put the rig to the test that night. (When does that ever happen?!)
