Up the mast!

This afternoon Michael went up the mast for the first time, and he swears it wasn't as scary as he thought it would be... imagine doing it on a rough and rolly ocean though...

Don't worry Mum, he was attached to the main halyard and had a professional-grade tether and a bosun's chair keeping him safe. Plus me on the winch, tying him off tightly and and keeping a close eye on things.

The job today was replacing the decklights and the anchor light with long lasting, high intensity LED globes, and checking out the set-up at the top of the mast so we can can plan the install of our new wind instruments.

Monkey boy....

And, the view from the top!!!
