UPHILL is on a distinguished road
We have a extendable crutch that fits in the rudder gizmos (pennels I think), extends 10 to 12 feet. and we also extended the part of the trailer where the winch is. We put a pulley there and use the boat winch to raise and lower. The first time last spring we tried the all rope halyard. It had too much spring for our liking, so we pulled it up with the forestay, better. I am sorry I don't have any picture as the boat is about 100 mile north and won't be down for a few days.

With the owner there I'm sure he has his way so watch and learn.

I will get some pic next week and post.


hope this helps..
