Used to have a San Juan 23 that I kept on a trailer. Used a lever like this on the backstay... Quick Release Levers - Johnson Marine Hardware | Fisheries Supply

On the forestay and shrouds I just used quick-release pins to secure them. Like these... R-Style Fast Pin - QRP Inc | Fisheries Supply

This allowed me to step and un-step the mast quickly and easily, and everything stayed quite secure. There was a period--about 5 months--when I was living aboard the boat and never un-stepped the mast. During that period I replaced the quick pins with normal pins and split rings to make it a bit more secure.
