Re: Taking the bull by the horns
Dont try to trailer your 20-25 foot boat to the lake/house/bay (youre either Lake Ponchatrain, Vermillion Bay or Calcasieu lake likely) every time you use it - stepping a mast is labor intensive. A boat that size should stay at the lake/bay with the mast up. If you must take it home each time, buy a boat 10-15 feet long - you can get those masts up/down a lot easier. Swing keels and shoal draft will be great for Vermillion and Calcasieu where the water is shallow. Good luck.
