Thanks to David Meek for supplying (and operating) the equipment to take down and then re-install the water side mast crane.
Thanks to Randall Massey for rebuilding the crane hardware and reworking the crane hardware on short notice.
And thanks to James Hankins, John Lusk, Jon Pomeroy, John Finks, Mark Blanchard, and David Patterson for the help on the ground.
Successful operation—ready for the Regatta!!!
James even went for a climb on the tower afterwards, to prove it was firmly attached (and to remove the temporary lifting straps).
