    Sanity Check: Winterization...Covering winches in a below freezing winter ? Maybe a cockpit tarp over the boom or unstepped mast ?

    Cover every year, mast unstepped every second year, the canvas 3 pc cover is at least 10 years old

    Can't Imagine How This Would Feel

    Can't Imagine How This Would Feel

    No, but the mast was probably shipped from the Chicago area to somewhere along the gulf coast where it will be re-stepped
