Today I worked on stepping the mast. There are shrouds and stays that had to be straightened out and the mast pinned. It is a heavy lifting job to get the mast stepped and pinned. One of the problems was that after pulled the boat from the water to my yard, I had to find a clear spot that didn't have a tree canopy. That was a problem because there are a lot of trees here.
In short, it made things much more difficult because every time I nearly got the mast raised, I'd run into a large branch. So then the mast would have to be lowered and the boat moved slightly. I finally gave up and decided just to clean the boat and save the raising until tomorrow.
I'm making small steps with the boat. I have missed going to my meetings and will go tomorrow. I need to make some small steps in my program and attitude as well.
