yes dog i know it depends on the boat, but if the light is 14 feet up i figured it was not a 14 foot boat.
bbush just keep an eye out for life line stantions hitting the dock when you pull it over

The boat is a Catalina 25, it sounds like hoisting me up there shouldn't be a problem then.
I like the idea of leaning the boat over the pier too, my dock is well suited for that, thank you.

This depends on the sailboat...

165 weight is nothing to sailboat rigging.
if you only need to get up 14 feet how about tying it to the pier and using a halyard to pull the boat over so the mast is over the pier. then you can use a normal step ladder on the pier, by the time its over far enough you might only need an 8 foot ladder

Depends on the boat.... for a 14' O'Day Javelin, yeah, it is... for a Gunboat 62 catamaran... three or four of you could go aloft and it wouldn't matter... for boats in-between....it depends.

|bbush||Thanks for the suggestion and the visual. I weigh 165 lbs is that too much weight for the rigging?|

Unless you want your buns squeezed together so tight that you'll be constipated for a week, get (or make) a chair with a solid seat, not one of those that are all fabric.

|bbush||OK, perfect. I think I will try #2 with a Velcro suit, if that does not work I will try a Bosun's chair and if that does not work I will sink the boat and replace the bulb from the dock.|

1- Use the Force
3- Sink the boat, fix the light, float the boat (I hear pingpong balls work)
4- Bosun's Chair
Bosun's chair is probably the most likely to suit your needs

|saildork||Bosun's chair is probably the simplest and safest. I've seen people use an extension ladder with a loose strap wrapped around the mast and one side of the ladder, but this wouldn't be my first choice.|
