Yes, we generally do it on the trailer. I tie a line to the end of the forestay, which my wife takes the other end of and walks to the front of the truck. I stand in the cockpit and lift the mast over my head, which enables her to easily pull it up the remainder of the way up and hold it there while I fasten the forward lower shrouds.

If I'm on the water, I just stand on the hatch and manhandle the mast upward. It's manageable, but one of the durn shrouds always seems to snag (right at the worst possible point in the lifting motion) on one of the pop top cover snaps, on the corner of the cabin top. Makes the veins pop out on your forehead! Besides, I'm 47 and I dunno how much longer I'll have that kinda heave-ho left in me. Best to not waste it.

Re: Daysailer vs cat 22

Can't go wrong with a C22 , some are fixed keel . My first boat was a O'Day 23 , had a schoal draft keel with a swing board that made it trailerable . I'd probably still have that boat but we couldn't stand up in it . Some of the Cats. have a pop top . Forget the Potter ,IMO . Sorry Potter Yachters .

Congratulations!

I'm not familiar with the Peep Hen but it looks like a fun little boat. Cool that you can run her right up on the beach.

Looks like a fun little boat, congrats.

Domromer -

Thanks for checking in! I like to hear how these things turn out. What do you think of the Peep Hen?
