Yes, I think know, the answer is get some help, right? First, I had to ignore the advice of a friend who had a Lido 14. On the Lido, he said he would put in the tack pin with his mast lying over the transom. After connecting both shrouds, he'd push up the mast and connect the forestay. Sounded easy, but I had to discover that this is impossible on a C14.2 due to the cross sectional shape of the mast, position of tack pin, etc. At least that's how it is on my boat. So instead, with the boat in its trailer, I've rested the mast on the trailer's front end support post and inserted the tack pin. After connecting the forestay, I pull up the mast. Now the "fun" part: while holding the mast with one hand, I connect one shroud and then the other. The soon-to-be-replaced old shrouds on my boat are kinda tight, making this no easier. And of course, dropping a retainer pin and doing this near power lines and trees doesn't make it any more fun either. I'd sure appreciate any advice on an easier way.
