“Heading up my mast today to wash sand off, just because it’s so easy now.”
Our ladders will work with a wide array of different rigs and systems including
Our Stand-Off System gathers the ladder up like a Venetian Blind to get round swept spreaders which can get in the way when hoisting your ladder.
Most In-Mast Furling Systems have a built-in Spare Luff Groove in the extrusion, for a backup mainsail or staysail. Some do not, but we can still offer a solution.
There’s a rich variety of Mainsail Management Systems out there, and we have a modification for most. So get in touch if yours falls outside the norm.
We often make modifications that allow the same ladder to be used on multiple masts. Whatever your configurations, we'll have a solution so that one fits all.
The most natural way to climb a mast,
without having to drill holes in it to fit steps.
Combined with our pole strap you can work aloft from a stable base with both of your hands free, allowing you to focus completely on the task at hand while safe and secure.
Unlike a more traditional bosuns chair, a mast ladder leaves you in full control throughout the climb. It's easy to use single handed and won't leave you dangling in the breeze.
The stability and convenience of Mast steps at a fraction of the cost, and without the extra windage, sail abrasion, and corrosion risk of holes drilled in your mast.
The ladder is a great piece of kit and enabled a 69 years old to get to the top of the mast in safety. Having spent 45 mins up there first time, the climb up and down a vertical ladder and the steadying while up there turned my legs to jelly, so on subsequent forays to the top I took a Bosun's chair up with me and I was able to have a good rest while doing the necessary work. I think that's cracked the question of fatigue and I can feel very confident about working up the mast.
I have now had my mast ladder for one and a half years, made especially for my two-masted Nauticat 43. I am extremely happy with it, using it tree to four times per year in both masts. The versatility of the ladder and ability for me to use it without assistance from others, to quickly enter the mast repeatedly, retrieving tools etc., are some of the advantages that I would not like to live without, once I first tried it. Pam and Denis are always extremely supporting and helpful, why I can only give their products my best recommendations.
I took my time to search for the correct item I required to climb my mast with ease and this item is perfect. I have swept spreaders but with contact to Kinleven the solution was simple. Would and have recommended this to all in my marina.
