Originally I was going to hire a rigger to rig my mast – but in the end I decided to save a few dollars and do it myself. I’m really happy I did. Again, it was a great educational experience to learn, make a few mistakes and feel confident knowing every part of the boat. Ruben at Seamark Marine used a hoist to raise the mast which made the job a cinch.

Hard at work – learning as I went.

A happy moment, standing with the mast up for the first time.
