Remove Mast and Boom (August 2014)

Disconnecting The Mast and Boom (August 7, 2014): Due to inclement weather and heart attack on the part of the regular crane driver, disconnecting the mast and boom had been delayed. It has rained a lot since we arrived at Bock Marine. In preparation of the mast/boom removal, John previously loosened all rigging turnbuckle screws and removed interiors/exterior parts such as the dining room table which was attached to the mast/boom. A group of people to disconnect the mast arrived in the afternoon. The owner of Bock Marine (Kenny Bock) operated the crane. The weather was good at the beginning. Removing the boom was easy. Then, the setup was ready to pull out the mast. A certain black cloud brought heavy rain with lightening/thunder. Oops! The crew came in the cockpit to wait for storm to pass by while the crane operator stayed in the crane. There was a big connection from a line from the crane to mast on ‘Bad Bunny’. I worried about thunder so I ran into the office in the rain to look at the weather radar. Another 10 minute and it will be clear. What a day to do this kind of work! I was far away from the boat/the crane but the people on the boat and the crane operator, I wondered how they felt…
