dropping the mast

Posted: 18 Apr 2012 - By: Thisboat
So, on my wee boaty R34, there is a pivot on the base of the mast that looks like it can be used to drop the mast (in a controlled way fingers crossed) !?!?!

I have been a part of doing this on boats of a similar size, but never on MY boat... 33;!!!

so have others used this pivot to drop the mast....

my intention would be to put a multiple purchase on the fore halyards and hold this off the deck by a wooden yoke of sorts, i am sure you all understand what i am very badly describing....

thoughts, experiences...
