Re: Removing the mast

All that work can be done from a chair in an hour or so. I don't pull my mast unless the work can not be done other wise. and there is very little that can't be done with the mast up. There is however a skill to working from a chair that comes with experience. It's all basically working a screw driver and a wrench, drilling, and tapping. Hoist a bucket for your tools and use messenger line to tie your tools to the chair, every body drops a tool now and then.... just my 2 cents worth
