One of the things I did not think out was...

...how I was going to get the fwd cradle supports back in the frame.

After failing on a few different ideas I ending up using the winch strap to the aft cradle support.

This worked but it was scary.

Back from the galvanizier.

One of the suport legs for the bow stop mast was broken off at the weld during the galvanizing process. I had to reweld back in place.

Fwd cradle supports with jack, at highest point.

The burnt bush. So I'm busy welding and look down to see a small bit of leaves smoldering, so I go back to welding.

And when I look, I now see the whole bush is blazing away. A couple of buckets of water and all was fine. And I did not hear voices from the bush.

Yes it is way up there.
