I climbed up the mast a few days ago so that I could install the Windex as well as connect our Furuno anemometer. The old ones were destroyed when the mast was unstepped and we elected to wait until the mast was re-stepped before installing the new ones. This was the 4th time I have climbed our mast, and for some reason, I was a little nervous about going aloft this time. Perhaps it was because it was my first time aloft on our boat while on the hard, or maybe it was because we were the only ones responsible for replacing every element of our rigging, but it felt much higher than usual. Once I got all the way to the top, Darth helped quell some of my nervousness and I was able to enjoy the beautiful view of St Augustine.
