installing the rebuilt rig

Finally the rig was ready to be restepped on the new mast step, amid ships and a meter to windward from the old mast track.

Chriso from all waterfront constructions came over with the crane barge to step the 20.5 meter wing mast.

Everything went really smoothly the biggest worrie was that the mast support pole would not fit but it all worked out perfect even the pre spliced dyneema  rigging was the perfect length.

The work is far from over next job is to rebuilt and modify the boom followed by a total reorganization of the deck layout to suit the new rig.
