Connect forestay, port and starboard shrouds, put mast in socket or tabernacle lift as necessary from front to back, connect back stay. This should be a 10 minute job. Whats the big deal here?

His question may be regarding a keel-stepped mast - which is more tricky. Capt''n Rog - please elaborate.

21 foot sailboats do not have keel stepped masts.

What makes you think that 21 foot sailboats don''t have keel stepped masts? Dovkies and J-22''s have keel stepped masts. Why wouldn''t something in between?
