    Sails go up and down fairly easily. Do you want to unstep the mast? That is more difficult. The Morgan 27’s mast not deck-stepped, so you will probably need a crane to pull it out. It has to go straight up to get it out of the cabin, and then be set down gently on the ground and laid flat. It is too long, heavy and unwieldy to do by hand. Trying to unstep the mast without the proper equipment could cause extensive damage to the boat and could easily injure people nearby severely. Since the boat is almost 10’ wide you will likely need wide load permits to transport it.
