Re: Going up the mast on a trailerable sailboat?

In addition to the increased safety factor, dropping the mast is likely the better option because you can take your time evaluating the fault and look at it from all kinds of angles. You're also going to improve your odds of not having left the one tool you really, really need back on deck and out of reach (not that that's ever happened to me, of course )
