Re: Small boat single handed hoisting

If I can't sail right off the dock, I row my 15'er out far enough to get some room, raise the jib and get sailing on a close reach. With the tiller lashed, I can go to the mast and raise the main as it luffs while the boat sails itself. I use the same method in my Mariner and my '22 after I shut off the motor.
