Went to replace the vhf antenna in mast cable on Island time. Broke it off in the mast, conduit seems blocked. Rig needs painting as well, so pulled the mast. Disassembled and bought rig home. Spent the last  couple of days removing conduit,  wiring, then sanding and painting.

So standard yacht maintanance formula applies.

Time, effort and expense expected x 5?

Seems about right! Pic shows mast now with alloy primer and one undercoat,  you can see on the boom on the ground the state of the paint before I started...

What mast steps are those? Aluminium?

I would like to add some to my mast but there only seems to be nylon steps readily available in NZ and I'm not too sure about their longevity.

Yep, Aluminium. You need to tap and machine screw them on, or use monel rivets. Alloy ones are not strong enough. Heaps of different ones available - like this https://www.fishpond.co.nz/Sports_Outdoors/Sea-Dog-Folding-Mast-Step-Aluminium/0035514328609

Today I learned a new rule that only becomes important when single handed.  Always store the spare toilet paper in the bathroom,  not under a bunk 40 feet away.

brings a whole new meaning to "single-handed"

*stabs out mind's eye*

Small boats have their advantages.
