Are there water stains? You can check the bulkhead where it bolts to..it is right out in the open...When I had my '84 30' mkIII I used Life caulk 4200..when I saw any water coming in I would dig out the old caulking & redo...But if you want to take it off...use one of your halyards & clip to the side your working on..that takes care of the upper..for the lower, throw a line over the opposite spreader & tie off both ends to the side your working on....use the rubrail or jib fairlead...
