Folding mast steps. Use heat shrink at the hinges so they don't rattle. Then, if you come to the South Pacific
, it will be easy, when entering coral
atolls to climb to the spreaders for better visibility into the water
. This is one use the take-the-sail-out-of-the-track-first steps just don't meet. Our Insatiable (the first) had them to the spreaders, and we liked them a lot, it helps you con the boat
in. [For work at the masthead, a matched pair, so you can look down on the mast crane really helps.] The additional height of eye really helps, because the water
is clear enough to see into, and at first, you don't really get what you're seeing means, but it's more obvious for the eyes aloft.
