If you were going to install mast steps...

Last time I had my mast down, I installed 2 of the folding steps near the top of my mast so that if I ever had to work there, I could stand on them if needed. I placed them so that the top of the mast would hit me about chest height. I drilled and tapped the holes and installed them with SS screws. I used anti-seize to prevent any corrosion between the SS and the aluminum mast.
