I've experienced the same problem you've had, however, I don't believe strengthening the mast step is the answer. All that will do is put more strain on the cabin structure. Since the forward stays need to be detached anyway, I'm working on developing some type of bridle that I can attach to the forward stays when detached so that they can become the side supports for the mast as it is lowered or raised.
