Re: Need To Hire A Local "Up The Mast" Person

To pick up on Chef2sail's point: we have a jam cleat just below the mast exit plate for the jib halyard. Even when I lift up the clutch on the cabin top, the sail won't come down.

The boat is still new to us and I always forget it's there because it's obscured by the stackpack. It was good for a brief moment of panic when I had my wife up the mast in the bosun's chair and couldn't lower her back to the deck a few weeks ago.
