I've been talking with a local machinist about putting together a solo stepping system.
I'm doing a full refit on my small boat, and still assembling the project list, prices, timing, etc; which is why I'm asking for input now.
Here's a link to a video of someone that has what appears to be a very slick self contained setup for the raising assembly, both on and off the water:
The big difference between my boat and hers, is that mine is more heavily rigged: 28' LOA, a 33' ~140 lb mast, 5/16" standing rigging.
I've a cache of bookmarks on various systems and setups I've found, but would like to get your thoughts.
I do try and search for previous threads on the subjects I post, but the advanced search function on Sailnet tends to give me non-relevant returns. So apologies if this subject was approached - just post a link to the other threads.
