Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

End of last season, I decided to build and employ a GIN pole for stepping/unstepping the mast on my Grampian 26, because, why am I going to pay $100 to step, and $100 unstep my mast every year when I can do-it-ma-dern-self for free? Build pole, works great, forget to remove shackle on the tabernacle, break cast shoe hinge at the base of the mast. That'll be $200 you knucklehead!

Thanks capt Aaron and others for the quick advice, and link up to klako spars who kindly provided the part!
