Has anyone had experience with driving an un-stayed (self-supported mast)
that is grounded (sea water ground) at it's base.  The mast is approximately
50' high and has only a forestay (rigging & electrical connection from the
top of the mast to the bow of the boat).  It is insulated at the bow and the
forestay is thus an extension of the top of the mast.  I would think that
this is a similar situation to driving a grounded tower or mast where
various coupling schemes can be employed.  The solutions must be
aesthetically pleasing and satisfy a marine environment.  Any ideas or
comments would be welcome.  Thank you.
