Re: Easiest mast to raise?

GREETINGS EARTHLINGS:- Had a Trident 24' triple keel cruiser/racer 34' mast raised and lowered single handed . Look on the trident owners association there are several designs for the tabinackles that are fitted to mast houseings. The one on board my boat was designed by my Farther and was out of two inch angl iron quarter inch thick in a u shape that fits over the outside of the upper tabinackle bolt . connecting the backstay the two shrouds and using the main-sheet attached to the spinicker halyard (3/4 rig) could up or down the mast in under and hour Hope this helps AS ALWAYS GO SAFE.
