Re: Topping lift loads?

Great points! No issue here on going up the mast as it is a trailer sailer and I wouldn't trust my weight up that mast. Instead I would just crank it down with the mast raising system I built. I also tension the main sheet when at anchor or dock for the same reasons at times, but never anything that would put too much on a block or rivet to strain it.
