Dear all,

Tomorrow (Sunday 14 Aptil) I need to lower my Tjalk mast for the first time. The mast disappears below deck where it is held in place by a winch and a load of pig iron. I understand that the winch raises the mast which leads to it falling back, but I'm nevous about doing this for the first time. Can anyone give me any pointers?

There is a second winch on deck by the mast but I assume this was for the boom or anchor chain. Apologies but I don't have to hand an photos of the winch itself, just an view of the mast below deck.

Apologies for no photos of winch.
