I am a new Catalina 30 owner, starting my first season on this boat.
The 87 Catalina 30 is on Lake Pepin. Boat is docked at Dan's Pepin
Marina with the mast tied atop the cabin. The only gin pole in the
area is located at the Lake City Marina. Unfortunately the recommended
rigger in the area is indicating scheduling conflicts and cannot help
me raise the mast May 25 or May 26. I have previously raised the mast
on a Catalina Capri 25, but this is a much larger, heavier mast.
Anyone contacts with Catalina owners on Lake Pepin would be
appreciated. If there are some experienced gin pole users for a large
mast in Lake City MN that could lend a hand getting the mast up May 25-
26-27, I would certainly appreciate their assistance with this boat. I
will work it around your schedule. Unfortunately my work pulls me to
the East Coast May 21-22-23. If possible, I don't want to miss sailing
some of the Memorial Day weekend.
