    Is there any harm in leaving the mast (H16) up all winter?

    I’ve never heard of or seen a problem. Only the halyard and other hardware/forestay get worn from the weather. In fact, having the halyard out and laying flat might encourage water seepage into it. Keeping a mast undercover I think is best. Just my observations for what they are worth.

    I drop the mast and strip the rigging. Leaving a bare mast. Down.
    And wrap the Comptip in a tarp. No UV, no possibility of wind on mast. No rigging aging any more than necessary.
