Hi Folks:

I've been struggling with the mast raising and lowering issue issue along with 
Joel. There is a big discussion of the issue on the Trailer Sailor Page 
bullitin board. It sounds like it sould be possible with shrouds and back stay 
in place to attach the trailer winch to the jib halyard and carefully crank it 
up. This brings to mind that my halyards attach to a fitting a little over six 
feet up on the front of the mast. I wonder if the trailer winch cable is meant 
to be attached to this. Could I get some help? I will need some method to take 
the mast down in a few weeks so something is going to have to get tried. I dont 
like the man handling method it seems dangerous. Hope to hear how to do it 
right. Tom
