Winter storage..mast up or down
I have done mine both ways, and will always take mine down now. I find that the extra cost is worth it. I can seal the boat better even without shrink wrap, also the ability to inspect the rig, the lights the masthead means you actually do that rather than saying you should. Here it costs an extra $150 but I will pay it each year. I think there is some pressure from yards to leave the masts up, because, even though they get extra cash, it is quite a bit more work in a very busy time each year. My 2 cents.
