Yes I am still afraid of heights

The wind anemometer was not spinning, I thought a cup was missing, and the masthead tri-color/anchor light was missing the anchor and the stern white light. To check these someone had to go up the mast.

I have always been afraid of heights but I have purposely done things over the years to move beyond that fear. This was my second attempt to go up. The first ended before the first spreader. This morning I remembered changing the building lights at Kings Island. Back then I would hang in a bosun’s chair from the end of a crane and change the lights that outlined the buildings. That was 20 years ago, but I figured that if I could do that then, I could do this now.

I’ll have to go up again next week to change the bulbs but it will be much easier.
