>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!
