I see some trees in the photos next to the boat. They can give you a better purchase angle to lift and align the mast.

Greetings
So finally I set a deadline for lady j to get in water . in November last year I decided I would launch on my birthday 17 Feb so we worked frantically and on 18 Feb I finally towed her out my yard even though I got her stuck on gate and then lost a wheel on highway but 7 hours later for a 100 km she made it to Anchorcreek at vaaldam .she is not in water yet as I am unhappy with a leaking keel but should have that sorted by this weekend. Major milestone was sleeping in her this past weekend even though she was still in trailer . will keep everyone posted as soon as she is in the water

Cheers
