Up the Mast

Using the new Mast Mate ladder system, was able to easily climb up the mast and:

1. Replaced spreader light bulb (10w halogen - couldn't find LED version)

2. Installed new flag rope for flying club pennants.

Only issue was that when hoisting the ladder, the steps tended to get caught in the stays which meet the spreader. Resolved by floding down the top spes with rubber bands and also by using the lazy jacks to flick them free.
