What to do while mast is off?

I have a keel stepped mast that is currently on the ground from shipping and doing boat repair. I want to do whatever I can to it to get it ready to put back on in a couple months. That being said, I would like to change/install a wind sensor/instrument up there and wires while it's still easy.

I will most likely be getting a B&G/Simrad mfd chartplotter down the road but have been looking at Airmar and Maretron for wind sensors since they are N2K and have heard good things about them.

What would your recommendation be for a wind instrument? Would you stick with a navico based unit from B&G/Simrad or Airmar/Maretron? Ultrasonic or not?

Also, what other things should I do or inspect or change on the mast while it's down?
