Re: Solo Mast Stepping System

Thanks for all the great info! We are planning on cruising a portion of the Rideau Canal and lake system in Ontario next summer on my Starwind 22, which currently uses the boom as a gin pole to raise and lower the mast. I'm really interested in a stable system that could be used on the water, because we would like to go thru a couple locks just for the experience of it with the kids. I like the idea of keeping the shrouds tensioned to keep the mast stable, and I'm definitely not concerned with modifying/adding hardware to this boat.

Trailer-sailing our way from Pennsylvania to Ontario Canada and soon the Chesapeake Bay!!!
