As soon as we could we moved Happy Hours II over to the dock to have her mast stepped. We were anxious to become a sailboat once again even though there still will probably not be much sailing in the Hudson River.
The mast has to be turned to get the spreader facing aft.
...and we are finally almost a sailboat again! There's one more job to be done. The line from the crane needs to be released. So,one of the marina workers shimmied up the mast without a climbing harness. He was good, not to mention he was probably in his 60's!...and maybe a bit crazy?
The rest of the day was spent tightening the turnbuckles, running lines, and finally in the evening getting the main on the boat. We ran out of time so the jib will have to wait until morning. It's been a busy day. Riverview, one more night. A great place to be, the people are all so friendly.
Chuck and I both decided we needed to go for a walk. I had my new scripts that I needed to mail. So we went in search of a post office in the town of Catskill. I just didn't know what to make of the town and didn't feel comfortable walking the streets.
