I need a way to get to the top of my mast- have looked at ATN, ascenders and the ladders etc. when i ran across this product- appeals to me because i can control myself rather than have someone below handling lines etc.-- the admiral could tail a safety
line from under the hard bimini
and would not have to have a great deal of strength to provide safety
. We have electric
winches but as i get older and more cowardly ( i don't heal as fast anymore) i don't want to put my fate in the hands of someone down below and really don't want to trust an electric winch
to get me up and down- heaven forbid a stuck solenoid etc.
is relatively short but i don't want to put steps all the way up the mast
. We have had at least one and possibly two fatalities in our area from people working on their masts and falling in the last 12 months-- no wish to join that club.
anyone out there with experience with the SWI-TEC mast lift
system? yes, it is expensive but i am thinking it is relatively cheap
way to stay safer? thanks in advance. link follows:
