The idea is more suited to his Cape Cutter 19 and Cape Henry 21 designs but at a pinch the Didi 26 should be able to use the idea?

A few days ago I read an article about a system that seems to have sorted out all of the normal problems. The best solutions are normally developed out of necessity, which is the case here. The owner of the boat has a mooring that is up-stream from a low bridge, which means raising his mast after passing under the bridge every time he wants to sail and lowering it before the bridge when returning to moorings.
My thanks the staff at 'Tropical Boating' for taking the trouble to write a clearly illustrated article about a solo mast raising/lowering system that can be adapted to most trailer-sailers.
This is the kind of boat that could work with a mast raising rig.
