I  appreciate your interest in the Mast Mate Climbing System , an efficient single-handed mast ladder and the practical Tool Bag Work belt. The Mast Mate attaches firmly to the sail track at every step and the belt allows freedom of movement with security. Combined they make working aloft a simple, easy, and most importantly safe experience. Since 1985 thousands have been sold with a money back return rate of less than 3%. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, are tired of searching the docks for a winch slave, are not a gymnast, are stubbornly independent, and want to reduce your yard bills, this system is for you. Buy one and try it , if not satisfied all that is lost is the return shipping cost. Look at the video and check out the rest of the web site to get a comprehensive understanding of the system.

Gary,

Yesterday I broke out my Mast Mate for the first time. I have been up the mast many times using ascender climbing devices, the ATN Mast Climber, and having someone hoist me up on a bosun's chair. Of all the methods I prefer the Mast Mate to the others and here's why: using ascenders are just too dangerous, the ATN Mast Climber requires too much exertion, and I would rather rely on myself than others to get up the mast. Besides, I am frequently alone when I have to ascend. Yesterday, I made three trips to repair my wind sensor; the cups on the anemometer required replacement. I thought I could replace the cups in place on the mast head, but no, I needed to bring the entire sensor down, and make a trip to West Marine. I would never have been able to make three trips with the ATN. I am just too old. I could have climbed the Mast Mate at least one more time.


My only criticism is if I had to perform a lengthy repair, say thirty minutes or longer, standing on the top steps would be uncomfortable. Instead I would wear a harness and secure it to a second line with an ascender.


Sincerely, Mark

QUESTION BY ME ON SAILOR'S FORUM ;

Anyone with a Harken Track system find a way to attach the Mast Mate to the track? Any standard slides adaptable to the Harken track?

RESPONSE:

I have found it quite practical to set the Mastmate free, with the use of a winch to provide a tight down haul. If the ladder is hauled tight, it doesn't move and the slides are not needed. I have not used the slides in years.
