Even though the heeling angle is reduced without the mast, you may be more sensitive to the accelerations. In that case, without the mast, the accelerations are about three times higher than with the mast.

And since these accelerations are such low frequency, the higher accelerations may actually be more uncomfortable. And since the heeling angle is only slightly reduced, but a higher frequency, we may also find this more uncomfortable.
