Unstepping the mast before crossing Lake Michigan to the Calumet River in Illinois. It seems a bit unnerving to have the mast removed. The sails are our stabilizers.
Bob and Vickie Lucas, a couple we meet in Harrisville Michigan recommend we come to St. Joseph for unstepping our mast. After researching the recommendation we emailed them and they sent us the marina info. I must admit Eric (owner) of Anchor’s way Marina and Adam, Joe, Ken and Jim who unstepped our mast were a delight to work with.

Unsealing the mast it was a mess. Think we will need a new boot.
