Unusual bosun's chair that permits the operator to climb the mast safely without any help from the deck. Using rock climbing "ascenders" and adding a seat, the TopClimber uses leg power to climb and descend. Permits you to get your head and chest above the halyard sheave to work on masthead fittings.
This ladder of fabric steps is run up the mainsail track. Avoids the need for a bosun's chair and a second person at the winch. The Workbelt holds the climber near the mast for hands-free work. It can be used with permanent mast steps as well.
Non-permanent mast ladder with full-sized treads for a comfortable position and easy reach well above the masthead. Rolls up for stowage.
Attach yourself or other weight and use the endless line to raise or lower with a 1-to-10 power ratio lifting device. Double-cam safety lock prevents slippage. Accessories include bosun's chair and safety gear.
Well-illustrated instruction on tying a safe harness with webbing, used by search and rescue teams. Saves the cost of a bosun's chair, although not as comfortable. Some other interesting knots are shown on this site.
