I found a bunch of stainless mast steps at Minney's in Newport Beach and used them to install the radar on the mizzen. Still need to finish up on the foremast.Hope I have enough!
I'm getting too old for that much adventure.

Mike. I weight 205+ and have been up to the top of both masts of my Mariner 31. I have not noticed any undue "flex" in the masts, and have swung myself out to tne ends of both spreaders. I use a Top Climber Ascender

I think you're okay, if not afraid of heights. Do it on a calm day:)
