I have been described as many things, a fat bastard not one of them, so I may be ok. The boat is on a swing mooring so when I go to the top it might just swing around one additional axis, and some charlie going down the tamaki river at 5 knots might just send me swimming in his wake :wtf:

You're welcome to tie up to the mighty Ballistic if it would help. Just let me know

Iain went up to the top of the mast on Rocky a few times, had to fend off the boat next door in a breeze tho,

Also had a fun time riveting the spreader back on up at westhaven while it was blowing about 25.

Get a fat bastard to sit on the windward side if there is a breeze, that was always my job.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

If it is so easy to heal it over; pull it over (ie. Self righting test) and then you are working in a a safe and easy environment. just pul it over until you can reach the top on a 1.8 m steep ladder.
Done at low water against a breast work gains a couple of metres.

Easiest way ..... send youngest up to the top, he can just reach everything if he stands on the spreaders
