What an excellent method and description of the long mast! I have a
fair amount of experience in masts that are longer than twice the
height of the gin pole, and the method I use, while effective, is
not absolutely safe, as yours is. Mine requires attention to physics, 
confidence, a trustworthy ground crew, and probably a tower that 
doesn't exceed 80 or so feet, whatever the effective shouting 
distance is. It also isn't recommended for masts that weigh more than 
150 pounds.

I won't share it here, as yours is far better; and SAFER! 

Thanks for the idea. Consider it stolen and prosletyzed!
