The mast will go up as soon as I can get two buddies together at the same time, one to run the crane at the Government dock, and one to help me pin the stay wires.

Thanks guys, I scrubbed the outside today while the wife did the inside. Looks like I'm going to have to wait until Monday to get the mast up. Oh well, another first world problem! at least I'll have her all tiddled up for my next set of days off, and the wife will be retired by then so we can go for a long haul.:)

so, the mast went up today in less than 45 minutes, that was great. the only downside was that the dock timbers were covered in creosote and some got transferred onto the deck. I've tried acetone, varsol, mineral spirits, bleach, and degreaser. it fades some but doesn't come right out of the non skid surface! does anyone know of a silver bullet for this stuff?

More degreaser mixed with detergent and tsp from the hardware store.
Oh yeah, lots of time and elbow grease.
