That's what I think too.

I'm excited for Jomfru

Her second life is about to start..a chance ill probably never get... With all I've done and given her she might even get a third, long after I'm gone

The mast lowering mechanism

I created this a mast stepping/ lowering mechanism with some spare parts that I found. Only took me about an hour with some basic tools like a band saw, disc Sander, drill press and some hand tools. Ok So maybe that's not so basic but even without those tools it could've been done. Here you can see the articulation from the full down position. You simply release pin on the forward side of the mast foot. I should be able to lower and step it back single handed. Or at least that's the theory. :D ~~_/)_~~
