NEW YORK
On a trailer of sorts in Buffalo.
mine since '85, bulkhead replaced previously,
Deck repaired many places and the repair undersides are painted,
Gelcoat was sanded and epoxied about 1991,
Cabin sole removed and replaced with PT plywood and stained.
Glass was added to transfer the keel forces to the berth forward end bulkheads
Remaining vermiculite is solid,
Topsides need serious buffing.
1986 4hp 2 stroke Evenrude outboard: it's blown but can start and pushes the boat slowly.
Sails: 1 full set North, 1 full set Haarstick, 1 cross cut spinnaker & 1 jib extra.
Portable toilet,
PVC pipe A-frame used to step the mast,
Trailer with spare: (formerly a tractor hauler) the lights & brakes need work, and the tongue probably extended before it travels faster than 25 mph.

Hi,

Very curious of A-frame used for stepping the mast. Wondering if you might send photos and/or info on it.

Thanks.

The problem with that is someone or several someone's build something just like it.
Then they use it. Something goes wrong and even health insurance companies now sue people.
So I think not.
But it can be done and worked better than the tree trunk I used in the past.
The key is it has to be tied off in all four directions and the two bases need to be secured from slipping by using the chain plates or something else.
Additionally once something is built it should be load tested for a greater load than it is expected to lift.
