Once you have your mast up in the air, you need to slip the special saddle-shaped fitting at the bottom of the mast over the keelson. It is a very tight fit, especially with 31 pounds of mast wobbling around 18-20 feet over your head. This little gadget widens the target considerably. Think I will make one soon. Also pursuing the idea of getting another mast and installing a hinge.
