STEPPING     THE MAST

When the mas t ha s be en co mpl et ely r i g g e d , it i s
r e a d y to b e stepped.     The fi rst thing that should
be done is to make sure the deck area is cle ar .
If it is I th e mast can be tak en on board the boat
and laid with its leading edge down and its head
facing forward.        In this position   I  the mast can
be slid forwa rd until the pla te on the ma st base
is above   the plate on the de ck.            The forward      pi n
of the two pins can be inserted         thr o u g h bo th
plates.   This pin will hold the mast in place
while the t u rn bu c k le s on the forestay,      upp er's,
and lowers can be attached         to their proper chain
plates.

(lNe advis e stepping      the mast    from the bow,          bu t
mast can be stepped        from eith er bow or st ern .)

This is a good time to make sure all of the turn ­
buckles  a r e fully extended.        If they    are   I   the mast
is ready to be r aised.

Once the mast ha s been rai s ed to its v ertical
                I
position,       the ba c ks tay turnbuck les can be
s e c u r e d to the aft chain pla tes, compl eting the
st epping .

NOTE : Wh en s te p p i n g the mast,         check    for any
       type of electrical      cables         which    may
       int erf er e .

SHROUD TENSION

Unde r no circumstance     s should any of t h e rigging
be s e t up "bar tight."    For all s 'at ltnq condit ion s
the 82 mast should be vertical      and in column,
with the rigging "firm.       A good starting
                             tI                   place
for tuning the mast is to have the foresta y and
backstay    the tighte st, with about one inch of
sideways     play.   Next is the upper shrouds with
about one or two inches of play , and finally the
lowers with two or three inches of play .

WOODWORK

The exterior and interior trim i s teak one of
                                          I .

the most durable and decorative    of all hard ­
woods - but it must be maintained to keep it
from sp litting and discoloring .

To help teak maintain its natura l color and life
longer, treat it regularly with a preparation
such as W e ldw ood ' s "Wood Life" or Boatlife's
"Teak   Brite . "

CAUTIO N

Never u s e steel wool instead of bronze wool or
sandpaper . Small filaments of steel break off
and cause rust spots that are very difficult to
remove.


WINDOWS       & HATCHES

The windows and hatches are of p lexiq las s I
noted for it s h i g h impact resistance.     Gritty
cleaning agents such as cleanser will scratch
the plextq las s . Use only mild soap and w a t e r
to clean, and ptexrc ies s po lish and cleaner.
Do not use chemical       solvents,   notably, acetone
and lacquer thinner . Th is will be injurious to
the plexiglass     and also have an injurious effect
on the window sealant and hatch gaskets.
                                                                34
