Re: Solo Mast Stepping System

I wish I could find the owner's manual that came with my Rhodes 22. It says, "After attaching the lowers and the back stay, using both hands heave the mast up with all your force." I did it successfully when I was in my late 20's. I used a high pully hanging from a tree branch as time went on. Ha!
