Anyone familiar with this guy? He has a bunch of sail camping videos, pretty cool. Some of the mechanical things he has done are interesting.
Has a block and tackle on the shroud to tighten up the mast at night for sleeping & loosen it up to start his de masting procedure.
He takes his mast apart in 2 sections for traveling.
Runs a pretty big motor (3.5 hp).
He made some big side hatchs in the hull for storage, almost looks like a live well. I couldn't cut mine up like that but Im envious at the same time.
You will probably see other things that jump out at you. Pretty cool. Steve C.

First time I see his videos. On min 10:15 in the video, where he used 2 carabiner snap hooks to connect the forestay. It looks way easier and faster than those micro clevis pins. It would also make it more easier, for someone like me who uses the Maststepper lll, to raise the mast.

Seems like you would have to shorten the bridles.
