Re: DIY Rigging Replacement
Ditto above about unstepping the mast-I did this with my Catalina 27, and tha 's how I'd do it again.
There's a U Tube video showing unstepping the mast with a spreader-height 2X4 A frame ?"gallows", to pull the mast out of the cabin-top step, and ease it down-that's what I'll try next time.
I brought my mast home to repaint/rerig, using a small trailer with a 2X4 crutch bolted to the back of it to support one end of the mast, and a roof rack on the front of the minivan to support the other end. It made for a nice, leisurely process.
