Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Stepping the mast Re: Re: Stepping the mast


I’m in a similar position really. I have just purchased a Mk II and have been considering how to step the mask. The mast is carried as normal I would imaging the top of the mast sticking over the bow of the boat in the little cradle that is attached to the trailer. Is this the correct position of the mast, I feel that the mast would be better placed with the base at the front in the cradle as this would facilitate an easier stepping or am I missing something? 😳 😳

Would appreciate any and all suggestions to help get the mast up easier.

I would just add that this is my first rigging of any sailboat. I am a complete novice.
