I'm intrigued by this idea, too. Using the spin halyard as a safety. Even in a seaway you wouldn't be being banged into the mast as the boat bobbed around. Worth a try for sure. One caution: You need to also loop a bit of line around the headstay and back to your harness. That way, if you let go you won't pendulum back into the deck or mast. That could be very, very bad.

Re: Self Hoisting Systems

I just purchased an ATN mastclimber.
Will be replacing radar/cable and wind-vane/cable tomorrow
If you do not hear back from me by tomorrow try something else.
