  • I am using eye nuts on the top of the beam attached to the outside beam bolt assembly. The Prindles use a 3/8" bolt vertically to attach the beam to the boat. I replaced the outside bolt with all-thread and threaded a 3/8" eye nut. This is primarily used as the barberhauler turning point, but while raising the mast, I take a quick link to the trap dog bone to the eye. Snug the tension and it keeps the mast centered while raising or lowering. This winter I will finish the jin pole part as raising the mast my hand has not been kind on my shoulder. I had designed one years ago for a customer that was self-adjusting and self-centering and hope to be able to duplicate something for the cat.

    WOW
    you are using every trick in the book:
    guy lines
    block to trailer
    transom wheels to assist moving off trailer and to the water
    and i THINK the fence to hold the mast during pinning - no need for your tripod
    Like a PRO !!!
