Sailboat Line caught on top of mast

Still a new bean… I recently bought a sailboat and noticed one of the sail lines has been pulled all the way to top. I cannot get up there. Any old sailor tricks on how to get back down.

It depends on your boat, the rig (masthead or fractional) and which line you want to recover but the reality is there are no old tricks… You’ll need a bosun chair (or something like a Mast Mate) and a couple of good friends! Please read up on how to use it and be careful.

Ok, I doI have a bosun chair, but I didn’t necessary think it would hold my weight. I will put the kid in there and send her up. great idea. Thank you
