Once the boat was in the water, the next trick was to step the mast. Borrowing a page from Chapelle I rigged one end of the spinaker pole to the mast and the other end to a set of triple blocks I picked up a couple months ago. With this mechanical advantage I was able to raise (and lower) the mast literally with one hand.
