Thanks for all the advice, loved the rant. I will fix the A4. I did pull it using the mast and the boom as a crane. Worked great.
Good on you!
I wondered if that'd work on a P30. It actually does
fit thru the opening under the companionway, eh? What did you have to remove from the engine to get it to fit thru there? Did you put runners under the engine, coming up to the cabin, to kind of "skid" it up that far, as I've heard is done? I assume you attached the main halyard to the boom to add a bit more strength, rather than just relying on the topping lift? What did you use for lifting tackle under the boom?
Details, sir, details!
to pull our A4, some day, in the fall, take it home and give it a thorough going-over, incl. all of Moyer's upgrades.
