Note the 'kick stand' on the trailer's right side to keep the boat and trailer jack from tilting up when a walk astern. [you can't 'cause I can't load the foto]

I wanted to post like four fotos.

So how do you fix this little file size problem? Post one at a time anew? And dab nab it all anyway what the heck is a KB?

I agree.  I have a hinged mast on my Weekender.  It uses two strap hinges instead of a collar, but the result is the same.  It is wonderful to bend on the main in the spring and take it off in the fall.  I used to keep my jib bent on all summer also, but now that I use a number of different foresails, I don't.  The only down side that I can see is that I must protect the flaked sail by covering it tightly before I go out on the road.
