Re: How often do you take your mast down?
Have never done it, to date. I do an annual inspection of the mast and rigging from a bosun's chair. Every other year, I have a rigger do an inspection (good to have another pair of eyes take a look). I plan to replace my standing rigging 2 to 4 years from now. Will remove and inspect the mast then as well as replace some wiring and upgrade the wire terminals at the base of the mast.
