Thanks for making that video. How did you attach the jib sheet line to the forestay adjuster? It looked like some kind of shackle. I have raised the mast solo with an additional rope that I tied around the mast, then wrapped around forward crossbar. Your idea looks much better! I know that the mast is heavy and awkward. With that being said, I don't like raising the mast solo. I always try to get someone to sail with me.

Hey Kevin,

I just wanted to let you know that your youtube videos were the catalyst for my getaway purchase. I've been trying to get my wife to buy into the sailing idea for a while and she was only lukewarm. I found your videos, sat the whole family down to watch them and it was what got the wife to sign off on the purchase. It also got my kids stoked to try sailing. We just went out for the first sail yesterday and can't wait to go again. Thanks for posting those videos!
