Today’s Mission……. Strip the mast on Xoomer and get it ready to pull for full inspection after our big explosion on the weekend.  Pulling the mast isn’t as easy as on the mini.  Firstly, the mast is about a million miles tall, so we need a crane.  Secondly, it weighs more than fifty pounds, so you can’t lift it by hand!  Lastly, there are several things connected to the mast that needs disassembling.  So my job today is to get to the boat ahead of the unstepping crew and get it all ready to go for them.  It’s supposed to rain and blow about fifty tonight!  Could be a little hectic  hahahah 🙂
