Yeah I'll get a pic of it soon but perhaps you misunderstand. The tab doesn't touch the deck until I am lowering the mast. I use a stand or a ladder at the aft end of the boat to keep the mast at an upward angle when it is all the way down as far as I'll let it before I pull the aft pin out of the mast/deck plate but the amount of angle needed to keep the tab off the deck is excessive.
