Re: Solo Mast Stepping System

The Corsair 750 has the easiest rig stepping system I have used. Basically it is a hinge that slides into place that the mast is pinned into. Then you attach a gin pole to the mast, and crank the whole mess up with the trailer winch. It also uses two side stays to hold the mast center lined as it goes up.

All in all it takes about 20 minutes up or down.

Similar to http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=eqsbJn4...%3DeqsbJn475_g but somewhat refined.
