Wednesday July 27th. Up the mast.

Written by Jack van Ommen on July 28th, 2016

This was a photo shoot opportunity. Yesterday I went up the mast with a mountain climbing type rappelling gear to drill holes in the spreaders for the pulley blocks for the flag/burgee halyards and to remove an obsolete try-sail track. Tomorrow I’ll use the same gear to go up the mast to check the mast steaming light, above the first spreaders. Yesterday I was cranked to the top of the mast by Steve Essig (http://www.essigphoto.com/) the camera man for a team effort documentary led by Dennis Minor (https://vimeo.com/dennisminor). I replaced the old incandescent bulbs with LED lights on the masthead tri-color/anchor light. The below clip is part of the video taken by Richard Gillette of¬†RKG Media LLC of Gig Harbor with his drone.
