Wind_Magic-

It would really help if you said what boat you were stepping the mast on... and whether it was a deck-stepped or keel-stepped mast.

Only an idiot would think that it is possible to answer this question without more specific information. The mast on a 13' Sunfish can be stepped without tools in about two minutes flat. The mast on the Mirabella V would take a crane and a bit of time and a crew of riggers.

If it is a keel-stepped mast, it will probably require the use of a crane or other such equipment to step the mast safely. If it is deck-stepped, then you have a few different options.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
