I would take the mast down. That way you can lay it out on saw-horses and take a good look at everything on nice steady terra firma. No multiple trips up and down the mast; no wondering if the halyard really can hold you, or if you tied all the critical knots properly; no rushing to get things done; no dropping pliers, screwdrivers, et cetera into the water (or on someone's head); and no sore butt from sitting in a climbing harness all day.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
