I pulled my boat down to a nice shaded area to step the mast and get everything rigged up... It took a lot longer than I expected it to take and was dark by the time I was done and ready to move her to a spot in the boat yard.

As I'm driving back over to the paved portion of the marina I hear a loud BANG. I look in the mirror and didn't see anything obvious and pulled forward a little more and then noticed the tree limb.

I tried to drive under a tree with the mast up - WHOOPS

No real damage done and I found that the cap in the top of the mast wasn't as secure and I would have preferred

Wont ever make that mistake again.
