mast stepping

Anyone use the single hand mast stepping system sold to FS sailers? It looks like just a pair of dowels acting as supports while you use the trailer winch to lift the mast.



I don't use any mast system myself, but the best one I have seen is Masthelper - pictures here:

Hi Brian. I own and use Master Helper II, sold though Flying Scot Racing. It's great!. 'Makes FS mast raising and lowering very safe & controlled. Last summer we trailered to a lake where the public launching area was on an incline. Stepping and (especially) unstepping the mast could have been very tricky; Master Helper made it all easy. It's really worth owning.
