It is the time of year for rig inspections. Here, we are aloft in the beautiful Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland. This trip aloft was courtesy of a Lewmar Electric Winch, what more could you ask for, going up!? On second thought, we could have used a bit more sunshine, but “beggars can’t be choosers.” […]Read More Views from Aloft
Ahhh a beautiful day to begin the Spring. Aloft in Maryland’s Capital, with a great view of the Chesapeake Bay, the U.S. Naval Academy and downtown Annapolis. Today makes me look forward to some spring sailing, a good steady moderate breeze with flat water. Just how we like it on the bay. Today’s trip was for a mast and […]Read More Views from Aloft
Well it has certainly been a while, but today’s excellent weather prompted another segment of “Views From Aloft”. This being the first climb of the year, all things considered, went pretty well.

Other than aloft on a sailboat mast of course;-0) It was […]Read More Views From Aloft
Here we had to go aloft to replace an external boom topping lift as the rope had slipped the sheave and jammed. This caused the cover of the rope to become separated. What creek is this? I can tell you that it is in Annapolis, Maryland. What kind of boat is this? Click on the pictures for […]Read More Views From Aloft….

…..is what we will call this new category. It is very simple I take pictures every time I go aloft and share them. So here you go. Today’s aloft mission was to install back stay insulators for a single side band, install a new sta-sail stay furler complete with runners.
