Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

meboater,

Thanks for the quick and thoughtful response! I had a feeling that it would support my weight (I only weigh about 165 lbs) but I guess I am just trying to figure out the safest and smartest way to go about doing the repair.

I kind of wanted to try going up at least once if for nothing else than the experience, but it may require a few trips based on first figuring out the problem and also to replace the broken wind vane which is a separate and less pressing issue (but another thing on my to-do list). Knowing that, maybe I will go up once to take a look and then lay down the mast as you have suggested to comoplete the job(s).

It is good to know that it is possible though and I always like to have options...
