Of course it was that.
It is the perfect plan.
It would make a good mast at that. And as soon as it became obvious that this things was made of metal (I did wonder), this too, became obvious.
Even if she can't get it to work, she'd have bragging rights and would be advertising her enemy's weakness.
I'm still worried that this will keep going on and on. How is she still standing?

@Tom didn't you know its the fad nowadays to give villains ex-machina after ex-machina and tons of plot armour, also don't get me wrong this is handled dozens of times better then stories with similar "plot drivers" ala AOT and reincarnator(god dammit Clementine(nudge nudge wink wink to people who get the reference)).
Called it. I imagine it would be like cracking a safe, hard to do onsite but if you steal it you can work on it at your leisure. She'll probably be able to get it working eventually.
Surely this is now an open goal for Burk?
The amount of concentration that must be required to keep that thing airborne will mean she's susceptible to a beating.
Also, I thought the compounded damage had weakened her? It must've taken some considerable force to subdue her first time around.
@Tom: She's not standing, she's levitating.
The quality of this writing is getting better and better.
The face ariara made against Pablo's Personalized windscreen was priceless.
And her incredible show of power even thou she "lost" to Burk is amazing.

The best purpose of a mast is to fit yard arms to it, and the best purpose of yard arms is to hang pirates. Just saying (and hopefully foreshadowing).
The questions we need to ask is this: What is Burk doing right now?
Aww! Come on! Don't get too greedy! :D
this reminds me of half of the dnd groups I've been a part of... our dm gets exasperated a lot
Well, that's some pretty impressive piracy...
@Your Pal: Perhaps he's looking for cloaks or other parachute substitutes? He may well be needing them soon enough.
