Re: Solo Mast Stepping System








A frame stays put, mainsheet tackle to raise the mast... it's so easy, that you stand, by the mast, pull with 1 hand, and steer with the other..... by the way works better if you put the mainsheet side AT the mast. Stupid simple, and fast. 4:1 works fine for my 31ft mast that weighs in a 70lbs.
