Hey everyone, I've got a catalina22 and am getting ready to launch her for the first time.My initial thoughts were to sail , then keep on the trailer with mast up when not in use. One person told me this was not a good idea.Your experienced advise would be most helpfull. thanks

It's very common to store mast up. With the larger windage of the mast, it can put stress on the stands/trailer. Be sure yours is well secure.

If you're a first timer, also be sure to tie the halyards away from the mast, so they don't slap, while you're away. Can really tick people off.
