So the owners of the boat yard didn't want to take the mast off of the boat while it was on the hard. Because 20 years ago they saw someone take one down & the boat went up with the mast & down on its side it went. Howard talked to the Yard foreman & he was all for it! Down she came no problems a hammer couldnt solve. Thank you Jerry for your help. The weather people are talking about a hurricane... The yard closed for 4 days as prevention.
Howard & I spent the better part of a day rewiring the mast. What should have taken about 45 minutes... took 4 hours. But we got it done without to much arguing. IT WAS A HOT ONE THAT DAY!!!! Lets go for a swim in the sea!
