Most of the time your view of the springtime mast stepping process is from the deck looking up. Here we see how it looks from the masthead. Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine mounted a camera at the mast top of Baraka, a 62-foot custom Reichel-Pugh design as the mast was lifted by crane and put in place. Would you want the job of retrieving the camera?
