Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Pole takedown

I wouldn't have thought there would be much pressure on the mast from the pole unless you were flying a sail from it and you didn't have a sail on the other side pole to balance it - just the bare pole wouldn't do it.
We sail with the poles and guys attached ready to go and frequently pole out the genoa only - poling out the jib / genoa is common practice on most yachts.
