SD,

It would be a stepped mast, but I'm not so interested in what is involved in getting the mast upright be it a crane or using a bridge or what have you, I have some grasp on that part of it. The part I'm more confused about is the specifics once the mast is positioned, or as it is being positioned.

But for sake of discussion, instead of talking about what I have, I'd rather talk about something I'm more interested in getting. Let's say a 34-36 foot sloop with a stepped mast. Hopefully that is specific enough.

I guess it's mostly the actual rigging process I am curious about, what has to be done to attach the rigging once the mast is up, to tune it, etc. Or rather when the mast is almost up I guess.

Thanks for responding.
