I hope you've at least tied a halyard to the chainplates or toerail to support the mast where the spreader is missing...

I was going to do a lot of cosmetic stuff on it anyway, may as well do it now while I wait to try to get some help to bring the mast down.

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.
