"...how you prevent the mast from swinging side to side as it comes up?"

I have a remote for the electric winch that raises the mast. I just stand at the base of the mast, push the button, and hold on to the mast while raising. The sidestays used to always tangle up as well but since I put 3 stainless chain links on the chain plate it's never done it again. (those pictures are under the mod thread). Your pictures are calling me to launch as well. I'm just too busy lately!
