Topic - how to get off a ships mast?

ebdon - on 15 Jan 2013
My uncle, who’s a keen sailor, asked me the other day how do you get down from the top of a mast? Apparently he had a sailing techniques book which explained how to ascend the mast (with ascenders)but didn’t go into how to get down. I’d probably recommend trailing rope up, fixing it to the top and descending on a belay device backed up by a shunt as this is pretty fool proof but does anyone know if there’s a 'correct' way?
