C22 Masting

First race in Wed night, so Still Time's mast had to get up.

The wind instrument did not work last season, so I removed the cabling and wind transducer and hooked them up on ACE.  Turns out that the cable in the mast is faulty and I will have to order another.  Takes a couple of weeks to come in.

Decided to put the mast up sans transducer.

Had to fill the hole where the cable goes through the mast step:

Bluenose on a dime
Scott and Gary gave me a hand

Scott pushing the button
The mast crane cable deflected the windex feathers, so I had to go up in a bosun's chair using the crane to correct.




Going back to dock
I will drop the mast after the new cable comes in.

Spent the afternoon rigging the boat:

  • boom
  • vang
  • halyards
  • mainsheet
  • traveller 

Just need to tighten up the shrouds for tomorrow night.
