Re: De-Masting

While you have the mast down is a good time to see if the wires inside are running free or in a plastic pipe.
If they are free they will make a lot of noise when you are anchored out.
Easy to fix when the mast is down.

Also check the wires. It is a good time to replace them.

Practice the phrase. "While we are at it"

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
