Ron's recent compliation of articles about raising masts on Dolphins was great. Now for a question about the small details. My mast tabernacle has a slot for the bolt to pin the mast in place and the mast itself has two holes for the bolt to pass through. Do you place the bolt through the lower hole in the mast to allow the mast to piviot then pull the pin and allow the mast to drop down and rest against the base plate of the tabernacle then move the bolt to the upper hole location in the mast?

Beautiful boats and fair winds!

Neither Mike or I can figure out how to get his pictures up on this Forum. So, I have put up his pictures on the website in the Technical Section - Mast Tabernacles and Hinge Plates. If anyone has any info on Mike's problem please post it here and we will update the website. Thanks
