what is the best method to put the mast up

The foremast of my tiki 38 was put down for repairs on the mastcase. I will have to put it up again, the boat being on the water. Can anyone share experience on how this is best done? Thanks!

hi Patrick,
IMHO, go to the nearest decent marina and use the crane for that. You will forget the cost of the operation by the lack of stress for you and your mastcase especially when windy.

Yes, a crane makes that a easy operation without the stress,watch the crane operator,though, make sure he does not fall asleep,like my operator did.! Hans.
