Re: Screw on the mast, Mast Steps

I used the aluminum ones (here) and love them. Never get sheets or halyards caught, and it's so simple to climb up the mask to check something out. (Although I still use a harness and safety line) If a already had ascenders they might not be as useful, but having the ability or climb the mast without needing someone else to winch you up is huge, but you already have that with the ascenders...
