New Anchor Light!

"I'm on top of the world!"

“I’m on top of the world!”

After having some problems with the previous anchor light, On Saturday I went up the mast to replace the light completely.  It took a little while, but I was able to get it installed.  In a couple of weeks, the steaming light will also be replaced (not quite as far up the mast then).

I did use my climbing belt and Mark’s mast ladder (which is great).  Rick, on the docks, helped secure a safety line to back me up.  I was able to run a daisy chain around the top so I could hang without fear of dropping.  Needless to say, it is a little scary going up, but the back-up made it all the more comfortable.
