Re: winching up the mast,
Lots of good advice in this thread and elsewhere on SN about mast climbing. We ALWAYS use the sheet winch as for the primary, and have used the mast winch for a back-up safety halyard. However, I prefer keeping the deck below the mast clear of people in case of an accident, so using sheet winches for both primary and secondary is preferred.
