taking down the mast

I've got some corrosion around the base of the mast and a very small crack in the attachment of the boom vang. I'm wondering what people typically pay for taking down a mast, repainting some corroded areas, mechanically fastening on a plate around the mast for a more secure attachment. Anyone had rigging work done like this?

Different geographic areas will charge differently depending exactly what needs to be done and that can only be determined by an inspection. So you need to go to the yards in your area and get some estimates.

we are doing that now, simply wondering if anyone had restepped their mast and had similar work done. Really no idea what common prices would be for this.

At least you are located in a place with many options and many people able to perform such work. In out of the way places it's not so easy to even think about such things. Organization to minimize haul out time would be an issue in Annapolis. You pay a lot by the day just sitting around waiting.

I would take the time to examine internal wiring of the mast as well as long as it's out. This should not be a regular exercise.

You really need to go and talk to the local rigger and ask for a quote or an estimate. Not much point in asking how long the piece of string is here.
