self mast stepping

If you have slotted rail around the perimeter of your deck - or - a life line system on your boat, you can use the same proceedure I use on my Columbia 26. Do you intend to step it on the trailer or in the water? My boat came with a system to step it on the water, but I modified it to work while on the trailer. I haven't seen pics posted in this forum, so I will probably have to email them to you. My email is pelicanl@yahoo.com if you want to make the connection.

You might take a look at the Alberg 30 site. There is a nice
description of an A-frame that is used to raise/lower masts
on A30's.

link -> http://www.alberg30.org/maintenance/...nsteppingMast/

I down-scaled it slightly and use it on my AMI 7.0. and I am going
to build another to use on my Gramp 26.

The part that I really like is that the center (of mast) lift-point provides
very good controll of the entire process.

Mast step pivot, etc.

Take a look at Bob Schimmel's San Juan 23 website. There are a lot of tech tips re. the mast, running internal halyards, stepping the mast with different approaches. The 23 is very similar to your 24 and there are a few different approches to the problem. Lots of other good tips that would cross over directly to your 24.

Are you trying to step your mast in water or on the trailer? How many people are available to step the mast.

An easy way to do it is to use two pipes that are setup as an A-frame via two stanchion bases on the deck. Run the main halyard to the top of the A-frame and use a block and tackle from the top of the A-frame to the headstay chainplate to pull the mast upright. This was the rig used by my friends on their Cape Dory 25...should work on most boats.

This system works with just two people and can be used on either the water or the hard.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
