I have a few things to do that require access to mast head (wind instrument replacement , furler replacement, etc). My marina wants to charge about $700 to drop the mast, lay it in the yard, and set it up again. That is with me removing the sails and boom. Seems kinda expensive to me. I would do all the work on the ground then. I was considering the ATN mast climber and doing everything myself without dropping the mast. For the furler I would replace the stay and assemble the new furler from the bottom up. The ATN is about $350 which is half the price of dropping the mast. It would be easier to do everything while it's lying on it's side I would think. Comments? Did I answer my own question?
