Checking the mast top

Finally there is an easy way to get to the top of a mast. Scroll in to 60 secs, then sit back and enjoy the ride..

Neat...
and I thought winching 50 litres of water to the top using the spinnaker halyard then fastening the other end to my chair was cool..

I am assuming you thought to have enough extra line to get back down, or are you posting from up there?

Re: Checking the mast top

Way cool.

Knowing me, I'd probably forget to close the hatches before ascending the mast, like I occasionally do before washing down the deck.

But my wife says that she still loves me.
