Rhodes 22 mast lowering under bridge
I have a Rhodes 22 and must lower mast partly to clear a bridge. Has anyone rigged the boat for this purpose? What type of winch used and how mounted? Any suggestions.

Rhodes 22 mast lowering under bridge
Hi Gene,
Am not familiar with the Rhodes 22 but have rigged a couple of boats to lower the mast.

If you don''t get the info you need let me know a few things about your boat. i.e.

1. Does the mast hinge at the cabin top?
2. Are the spreaders straight from the mast or swept aft?
3. Do you have a single shroud attach point on each side or two?
