Stepping the mast part 3: actually getting around to it already!
Lets start with a quick picture of the mast being transported to the boat with the crane on the end of the travel lift (it was going to be a video, but that is taking too long, sorry).
After some time trying to figure out that when you step a keel stepped mast, forward is backward and left is right when you are giving instructions from inside the boat to the crane operator (the mast is busy pivoting at the deck). In the end, we finally found the step with the mast, and we were set. At the end of a busy morning, we were back in our slip with a much taller boat again.
