The Hobie Mast Stepper II is the easiest to use mast stepping device available. The MAST STEPPER II is even easier to install and use because it eliminates the trailer mounted gin pole. However, the Mast Stepper II system does require that the trailer's forward mast support be 30" taller than the mast step. The mast is stabilized by tying a trap wire on each side to the front cross bar. The Hobie Mast Stepper II kit includes all necessary lines, shackles, blocks and instructions.
All Mast Steppers do require that you boat has trapeze gear, since the trapeze wires are used to keep the mast centered over the boat while raising.
If your trailer doesn't have a winch, you may purchase HC 3153 separately. Have additional questions about the Hobie Mast Stepper II?
