|Mc51||That is one of the reasons that I'll use the double blocks and line when it comes time to lower the mast. Plus the fack that the cheap winch that I bought at Harbor Freight Tools doesn't have reverse. It was great for raising it though. It came wita twenty foot remote control cable.|

|sailingdog||The only real issue with using a powered winch is that it is really easy to break something if you're not careful with an electric winch. So, you really need to keep an extra careful eye on everything using a power winch.|

|Mc51||I balked when the boat yard wanted twice the amount they charged to set my Cal25 in the water to lift my mast, so I motored to the marina with it tied down topside. After two unsuccessful attempts to raise it with brute force, I conceded that it would not be as easy as doing it on our Hobie 16. I made a step hinge out of 1/2 inch angle iron, a heavy duty gate hinge and three band clamps. We stabilized it from port to starboard with nylon lines. I used a 112volt winch tied off to the bow to do most of the work. I think that when we lower it we'll just reverse the procedure but use double blocks and nylon line instead of the winch. If you want a picture of the step hing that I built send me an email "email@example.com"|

Here's a link to the maint section of the Alberg 30 dot org website.
Looks to have some information that might be of use to you.
Of course YMMV.
