I like zz4's picture... its reverse of what most everyone does
(mast rests on pulpit, forstay already connected. and using boom and mainsheet.)
but there is very little if anything new to buy... looks very interesting.
Hm How do you move the mast forward from the travel position to the lift position and get the pin in the tabernacle single handed.
I don't like the idea of resting it on the pulpit unless it could be temporarily strengthened.
