South Carolina Cal 21 Owner

I just acquired a Cal 21 on a trailer. Never had a sail boat before but always wanted one and to learn to sail.

My son and I stepped the mast yesterday evening while it is in the yard and on the trailer. We could not get the cable to reach the bow. Seemed to be about 12" - 15" short.

Not sure what to do next other than rig something with the trailer winch to help raise the mast. Walking it up for a middle aged and vertically challenged man is a chore.
