Re: stepping/unstepping mast on Cal 25-2
While no expert.. I'd rate that ya need a crane! The "I" dimension is listed as 33 feet, plus whatever's in the cabin to the keel; perhaps another 6 feet. So..ya wanna humpa near 40 foot bit of aluminum pipe, replete with rigging??
Din't think so!
**IF** it's not a keel step; or ya look into one that's not, go peek at a vid by Seaward showing the way they recommend stepping their masts. Quite the process; but relatively easy and straightforward. With the right additional rigging as shown there, it's piece of cake!
