Going Aloft: Lessons Learned
What was easy at 27 is still doable at 47, just much harder.
The spreaders don't look far from the deck, but the deck looks far from the spreaders.
What I learned in the coast Guard is still good.
I went up the stick yesterday, hauling myself up with a tackle. Twenty years ago I just pulled myself up the main halyard. But I was stronger and lighter then.
I put bird spikes on the spreaders, they passed their first test. Every bird that approached veered off at the last second.
