Re: Climbing the mast

Most 26ft boats are going to be fairly sensitive to having additional weight on the mast. In fact, many aren't going to like having a climber at all, let alone permanent steps.

Do you have an routine need for going up the mast? If not, I would just unstep it when you need to do something.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
