The Rage was launched and is now rigged and ready to race this winter. Ian says that it is the heaviest boat that they handle with the forklift.

Usually the freight boat raises the mast with its crane, but it was unavailable, so the forklift was put back into service for the job.

It took awhile, and several crew members, to get the mast into place. Thankfully, Dave Pahl, Jim Ryan, and Will Heyer had repaired the mast step.

Then it was time to sort out all the halyards and stays.

Rich Cook works on unfouling the topping lift, from high on the forklift, using the prys as a scaffold.

Many thanks go out to Craig & Linda Knowles and crew from Lighthouse Marina for all their service and support of the A.R.S.S.!
