My '96 WWP15 does not have a quick disconnect forestay attachment so getting it in place was a tough pull and hold. After multiple sessions struggling to get the mast in place a solution came to me as hightlighted in the photo. The lever made from workshop scrap steel remains in place on the forestay with the aft bolt placed only when attaching/detaching forestay.  Maybe I'm not the first to come up with this solution, but it sure makes getting off the trailer and on the water an easier process!
