These 8 pages of discussion about mast climbing makes me think of a thread I read here last week --- Seems the guy (Sorry I don't recall his name) had a winch pull loose, and was looking for advice on re-attaching it. He found out his winches were attached with 4 screws. No backing plate, no fender washers, - that works well with bolts. This was only 4 screws!!!! How would you like to be winched up a 50 foot mast with that? Better wax the deck - it makes blood easier to clean up!
