I live in NY, and it gets COLD in winter. Every year my boat get hauled, the rig taken down, and the boat moved to a yard. The reverse happens in the spring.

And, it seems that each year, some nuisance type things happens to the rig. Either some wiring in the mast gets ripped, or I loose some mast wedges, or the mast boot gets torn, etc.

If I didn't HAVE to take the mast down, I would leave it up for some period of time, maybe 5 years? You do need to inspect it though. I check mine when it's down, and again mid way through the season (as best I can from deck level).

Good luck,
