When we lowered the mast, it came to rest in a horizontal position, with the top of the mast at the stern. This photo shows the tabernacle (bottom of the mast) that attaches on the fly bridge, the spreaders on the mast, and the Raymarine radar antenna. The top of the mast is to the right and out of the photo.
We’ve been boating long enough to know that our plans are always subject to change, and the key word is “flexibility.” We had hoped to be underway by now, but it’s taken longer than we expected to get things ready to travel. Some of our projects have taken longer than we planned…one was changing the bulb in our anchor light.
