Arietta Phase 2-3
With some time at the end of the day, my impatience got the better of me and I decided to remove the mast; I’d planned to wait till the bay next door was free in a few more days, at which time I could easily use the crane there to remove the spar, but after inspecting the situation and test-lifting the mast I decided it was light enough to remove safely by hand, which I did using a pair of ladders, eventually lowering the mast easily onto my rolling staging so I could move it outside and out of the way for the duration of the project.
