We unstep our mast every few years so that we can go over it carefully and examine ALL the fittings, terminals, struts, turnbuckles, and cotter pins. Then we can tape the things that need taping carefully, without losing two or three rolls in drink or spending hours in the bosun's chair developing terminal wedgies. Yards are trying to make money too, but sometimes they're right.
