Climbing The Mast

Stephen and Lu Ann Yoder

In your video about climbing the mast, Kern uses some sort of ratchet assembly on his bosun's chair so that he can raise and lower himself and the ratchet appears to hold by itself when he quits hauling. Do you know what he was using? And does he have to get all the way to the top to reverse the ratchet so he can come back down? It looked like a really slick set-up.

I am not sure what Kern uses. You need to contact him to find out.

Thanks. I'll do that.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
