is 10 metre high, 250mm(approx) round aluminium section mast
, on a junkette rig 25ft yacht. Free standing. Halyards are external.
Today, i attached the halyard
block tackle on my harness, also using a "Prusik" knot
on the pull line to my harness. Also with a "Klemheist" knot
around the mast as a safety
backup. This was satisfactory, but could be improved....
So im asking if another improved system that i thought of afterwards would have any problems....Hoist a block tackle to the top of the mast with the halyard
, then cleating off the halyard & simply pulling myself up using a "Prusik" knot on the block tackle?, (again also with a safety
klemheist around mast).
Anyone see any problems?
Im very comfortable with "Prusik" knots being a rockclimber & arborist in previous lives, but havent used block-tackle's very much.
Thanks for any replies.
Im thinking of using 16mm static abseiling rope
in the block tackle.
